"It is not for you to call profane what God counts clean."

Did Christianity replace traditional African religion with the arrival of European missionaries in past centuries?  Or did sub-Saharan African cultures persist in maintaining their religious worldviews even after accepting the salvific message of Christianity?  In this compelling book, Laurenti Magesa argues that despite missionary Christiaity's refusal to acknowledge the worth of traditional African religious culture. the incarnational spirituality of those cultures remains vibrant and visible today, and has much to offer and teach other cultures, both Christian and not.

Laurenti Magesa has a Ph.D. in moral theology from St. Paul University, Ottawa, and taught from 1986-1992 at the Catholic University of East Africa, Nairobi, Kenya.  He also served as a lecturer at the Maryknoll Institute of African Studies.  His books include African Religion: The Moral Traditions of Abundant Life and Anatomy of Inculturation: Transforming the Church in Africa.
