Blurb/Shorttext:
The challenge of the inconsistencies between faith and practice among Christians has always been a source of concern for minister since the time of apostolic ministry.Things have not so much changed since then;The Wanga people of Africa are not unique,as such they too are prone to this challenge.The above therefore has resulted in less commitment of the Africans to churches. This has further led to the Africans moving from Christianity to other religions such as Islam;and at times back to the African traditional religion,to seek religious satisfaction. Inculturation of Christian concepts such as atonement and their interpretations will form the most appropriate way to solving this problem. This is because inculturation will make Christianity an internalized religion hence becoming a faith that is fully lived, able to answer, religious questions among not only Africans but Christian family as a whole. This book looks at the following aspects of atonement;atonement among the Africans and in the bible. Being a relational concept,the interpretation is bound to be relation based.Yet this ought to have its value founded on the bible for it to speak to the people of God in their culture.
