What does the world look like through the eyes of the traditional African, and what is the role of God in this world view? What is lacking in the traditional African worldview, which has predisposed Africans towards welcoming the Christian message? What is the dilemma which the African Christian faces when confronted with crises of life such as sickness, drought, and witchcraft? Why do African Christians in times of crisis often resort to animistic rituals in spite of prohibitions of the church against such practices, and what are the consequences? What are the elements of the gospel that are particularly relevant to the African in his world? How can the church teach these truths more effectively? These are some of the questions this books will answer.
