9783631456460: Saturday God and Adventism in Ghana (Adventistica)

The Akan people of Ghana treasure a great African heritage in Onyamee Kwaame, the God of Saturday. Long before the European Akwasi Bronii anchored at the shores of Ghana in 1471 A.D. and Sunday was introduced by Christianity as the day of rest, the Akan kept Saturday as their holy day which resembled very much the bibical Sabbath. Interestingly enough this indigenous religion is a home-made heritage, reaching deep into Akan antiquity. This Akan heritage is undoubtedly one key reason why the Seventh-day Adventist Church has experienced tremendous growth in Ghana since its official debut in 1988 (A.D.).
