Pope John Paul II speaks in „Ecclesia in Africa“ (1995) of
the necessity for the Church to inculturate itself into the
cultures of the African peoples. This book sets out to show
what makes inculturation in Africa a necessity. Against the
background of a socio-empirical study it becomes
understandable, why in the history of mission, from an
European-religious perspective much remains misunderstood
and causes distress until today. The author focuses on the
„way of Inculturation“ showing how a „rooting of the
Gospel in Africa“ could be possible and sustainable.

Michael Ukpong is a priest of the Catholic
