During the twentieth century, the number of Christians in Africa grew from an estimated 4 million to more than 300 million. One of the forces that has propelled the church's remarkable growth is its liturgical music, which has been heavily influenced by indigenous musical traditions. This rewarding book takes readers "inside the music" for the first time. By examining the central role of indigenous music in promoting Christianity and in giving voice to local theologies, the authors seek to energize conversations between music, culture, and the church. Furthermore, they extract useful lessons for fostering faith communities around the globe.

Review:

"This book puts a face of hope and faith on Africa, the second largest and, for some, the most chaotic continent in the world. Through song, dance and drama, we learn of additional ways to pray and praise the God of all peoples, times and places. The insights offered in this volume come from authors who thoroughly know and love Africa and, through their insights, further our understanding of how God is moving in the world through music and faith. A significant addition to the literature on music and mission."―C. Michael Hawn, Professor of Church Music and Director of the Sacred Music Program, Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University
