Personal Philosophy Statement: The ever growing body of literature in the African theology in the past 20-30 years is reaching a near saturation point, in our times. We are at the crossroads, and the question is ‘How can African theology survive the self repetition of mere cultural apologia or contextualization stereotypes, and mature into a critical theoretical discipline responding to the challenges of the postmodern world-order?’ Featured in the ‘The Bible and African Culture: Mapping Transactional Inroads.
