About this title


Contextualization of Christianity in Africa: A Case Study of the Kpelle Tribe of Liberia by Rev. Dr. John Kallon is a meaningful book of Bible science that reveals how Liberian Christians learned to contextualize their faith as Christians within their African culture. Written with the wisdom and experience of members of St. John's United Methodist Church in Gbarnga, Liberia, this Bible study of the Book of Exodus focuses on issues of contextualization. The group identified issues common to HebČrew and Kpelle cultures and considers tribal elements such as proverbs and expressions to create a unique experience with a universal message of healthy Christian faith.
