African Christian thought is expressed in a great variety of ways. It is not necessarily written down and may often be expressed in oral discourse and dialogue. The other subject areas such as ‘Bible in Africa’ and ‘Engaging Africa’ are of course equally examples of African Christian thought, because much African Christian reflection is developed reflecting on the Scriptures and responding to many pressing issues that the church and the continent are facing. This section focusses on the contributions of Africa’s older and newer theological traditions (such as Roman Catholicism or African Independent Churches), the work of particular African Christian thinkers, and theological themes such as the Trinity, cosmology and sacrifice.
