Dialogue between African Religion and other world religions has,
regrettably, been a much neglected area in formal religious discourse in
Africa to date. Moreover, up to now, the imperative of dialogue in the
process of evangelism figures only peripherally – if at all – in the study
of African Christian Theology. This book is probably the first deliberate,
extensive and well-argued attempt by an African theologian to fill this
unfortunate lacuna. How can Christian and African spiritualities interact
with and enrich each other on the basis of mutual respect, without – as
has historically been the case – the one necessarily seeking to eradicate
the other? This is the fundamental question of dialogue discussed in the
pages of this book.

Dr. Laurenti Magesa is Senior Lecturer in African Theology at the
Maryknoll Institute of African Studies and the Jesuit School of Theology,
Catholic University of Eastern Africa, Nairobi, Kenya.
