Modern Christianity and Africa

Andrew Walls on the importance of understanding African theology: “Where Africa is the focus of study in the secular academy today, there is widespread acknowledgement that, if one wants to study modern Africa, it is necessary to know something about Christianity. In the theological academy, however, there appears much less recognition that if one wishes to study modern Christianity it is necessary to know something about Africa.”[1]
