This book addresses the theme of the Second African Synod on Reconciliation, Justice, and Peace in the wider context of globalization, inculturation, post-modernity, and pertinent socio-economic and political factors that shape the contemporary church and society in Africa. The 20 contributors represent a variety of disciplines and some of the issues discussed include:

  • Ecclesiology and the challenges of reconciliation, justice and peace in the context of crises, conflict, and poverty
  • Reconciliation, justice, and peace in Scripture, small Christian communities, and the church
  • Corruption, democratic principles, and governance
  • Integrity of the earth: environment, ecology, natural resources, and the church in Africa
  • The role of the Catholic Church in the public sphere
  • Women, leadership, and the theology of the church
  • Gender justice in the church and in African society
  • Interreligious dialogue (Christianity, Islam, and African Religion)
  • The challenge and ethics of HIV/AIDS prevention.
