THE MISSIONARY AND THE DIVINER By Michael C. Kirwen
Through a series of conversations, a Christian missionary and an African diviner challenge and compare one another’s view on fundamental theological questions: meaning of God; family and community; sickness and healing; and the afterlife; good and evil. Their discussions tellingly reveal both the vitality of traditional African religions and Christianity’s ethnocentrism when faced with certain basic issues if Africa. In the larger sense, The Missionary and the Diviner demonstrates how-and why - a cultural approach to evangelization is essential for the indigenization of Christianity.
