Abstract

The theological enterprise of African theologians and the feasibility of an authentic African Christian theology are no longer subject to question. The raison d'être of this African theology, as Valentin Dedji put it, lies in the search for new patterns of thought and new theological approaches that will enable African Christians to understand African realities in African ways, to overcome the crises of African societies and to transcend the barriers that divide Africans. The reconstruction and social transformation of African political and economic structures is the current paradigm advocated by some African theologians, since the symposium convened in Mombasa, Kenya (9th_16th November, 1991) by the All Africa Conferences of Churches (AACC) on the 'Problems and Promises of the Church in Africa in the 1990s and Beyond.'
