How Africa Shaped the Christian Mind: Rediscovering the African Seedbed of Western Christianity

Today is the last day of Black History Month, and so the last book to show is How Africa Shaped the Christian Mind by Thomas C. Oden




The book is mostly geared towards the next generation of Sub-Saharan African Protestant Evangelical Christians. He wants them to look at the Christianity of the first five centuries as a means to capture a lost identity. He knows the global south in general will eventually dictate the future of protestant Christianity. He also knows of the tension between Islam and Christianity as well as the negative social and psychological impact that western missions have had on the continent. I'm only 20% into the book, but so far it's looking pretty good. This work was a result of his Ancient Christian Commentary project. He saw the profound influence the Continent had on shaping early christian thought.
