Incarnational Theology in Africa: A Christo-Centric Perspective

P.E. Nmah, B. O. S. Udezo

Abstract


In the course of this research, I observed two challenges in most of the post–colonial African theological discussions: lack of precision and inadequate methodology. These attempts generally suffer from two weaknesses. First, they rarely go beyond stressing the need for African theology by way of illustration. Secondly, quite often the proponents of such African theologies have gone about their task without a conscious examination of the methodology involved. Generally speaking, this work observed that the varying theological approaches of African theologians have brought the post–colonial African church to cross-roads. This is because African church has been exposed to many options ranging from vain syncretism, universalism, Chris-paganism, humanism, Africanization and so on. The method of approach is descriptive with the review of related extant material.
