About this title

Synopsis:

This volume collects together Kalu s insightful essays on the intersection of religion and social issues in Africa. They constitute an engaging set of political and ethical analyses of the flow of events as Christianity penetrated Africa and sustains itself it multiple forms. It is an illuminating, informative, and and provocative commentary on religion in African public spaces. It is also a constructive study of how religion affects public life, engaging the debate on how primal religions frame the outworking of the social ethics of African Christians and Muslims. In this set Kalu displays the sensitivity of a great historian coupled with an eye for ethical issues.
