Abraham Berinyuu
Healing Rituals as Theological Drama
Insights from Kaaba Healing Rituals Among the Frafra in Ghana
Reihe: Religionsethnologie
Bd. 1, 2007, 240 S., 24.90 EUR, 24.90 CHF, br., ISBN 978-3-8258-9940-0

The book seeks to investigate the role of healing in non-western healing utilising interdisciplinary theoretical perspectives. The insights gained from such investigations become the basis of formulating a new and different theory of ritual and healing. This theory is then the use to construct a practical theology of ritual in healing. This approach opens a way for a dialectical, contextual hermeneutics of practical theology in non-western culture, from which Christian theology can gain insights into the traditions out of which people become Christian.
