Blurb/Shorttext:
The challenges facing African Christianity are similar to those the early Greco-Roman Christianity faced while trying to integrate the gospel in the ways that were understandable by locals, as well as being authentic as far as Christianity was concerned. In Africa, the churches are also trying to integrate some cultural values within Christianity so that Christianity will not be viewed as a foreign religion but as an African religion as part of a universal religion. Many African theologians and scholars have come up with various Christological models which try to speak the gospel in African way. These are, Christ as the healer, ancestor,and big brother…. This book is written in similar circumstances, in particular in its focus on Igembe community a sub-group of Meru tribe in Kenya. It is focused on understanding how African spirituality has been a challenge to Christianity, especially as far as healing, health and wholeness, calamities, and witchcraft are concerned. It is also in this perspective that the office of Muaa is studied.
