Blurb/Shorttext:
This dissertation focuses on urban Nairobi Kenyan Christians’ experience of the death and burial of their loved ones. The research elicited descriptive detail on current death and burial practices among these Christians, explored cultural conflicts that these Christians experience in their setting; ways in which the church provides social support during this process; and explores possibilities of contextualization, which draw from prior cultural patterns, which appropriately provide crucial supports, and which are appropriately Christian.
