Being Human in Africa

Toward an African Christian Anthropology


Augustine Musopole

Professor Ali Mazrui has stated that black Africans have been humiliated by other peoples in the world, especially Europeans. The question that this book seeks to address is: How does one make theological sense of such a humiliated humanity? It is the contention of Being Human in Africa that the theological meaning can only be derived by beginning with the African peoples' own self-understanding and definition. In order to establish that self-understanding and definition, the book looks at the dilemmas of identity, historical consciousness, cultural salvation, change and modernity, and epistemology.
