The purpose of this portal section is twofold. In the first place, it functions as a portal to the principal websites that are important for the study of African Christianity and African theology. It directs the user to a wide range of websites both within and outside Africa that provide primary and secondary sources for the study of these fields. As such this website is aimed at both African and other students of African Christianity and theology.
We hope that this website will become an important portal for the study of theology and religious studies for students, teachers and researchers in sub-Saharan Africa itself. Therefore, in the second place we intend this website to be a portal to the many resources available online for the study of theology in African contexts. Of course, the theological disciplines relevant for Africa are not all equally shaped by the particularities of the context. For example, when studying biblical languages, users can equally profit from websites that do not pay particular attention to the African context. For the same reason, we have a general section of the portal that provides helpful tools for the use of the internet in research, teaching (online and offline), and personal study.
From the titles of the sub-sections in this portal, it will generally be clear whether they cover materials that are specifically related to the African context. These sections intend to serve a worldwide community of students of African Christianity and Theology. Other section titles make it clear that they introduce users to more general websites for the study of theology and its various disciplines.
The development of this portal is a collaborative effort. If you are aware of other websites that might be worth mentioning in the portal please inform us using the online form that can be found here. It would be helpful if you include a short description of the content and relevance of the website with your suggestion. Please note that this feature is only available to members of the website; if you would like to become a member you can do so here.

Missio Africanus’ Journal of African Missiology (MAJAM) contributes afresh to issues of interest to African Christianity's mission to the world. Describing its aim, MAJAM explains that it "is established to provide a critical scholarly commentary on the development of mission within African Christianity, and the study thereof, both in Africa and in the Diaspora. It is about mission and the African peoples. Anyone can contribute, regardless of whether they are African or not. Articles have to reflect mission by or among Africans, in Africa or elsewhere. Subject of interest include African theology, African philosophy, African religions, leadership and others."
Founded by Dr Harvey Kwiyani, an African missiologist with lecturing and missionary experience acquired in three continents (Africa, North America and Europe), MAJAM brings a breath of fresh air on discourses and commentaries of African missiology.
