From Amazon: Theology and Identity: The Impact of Culture Upon Christian Thought in the Second Century and Modern Africa (Regnum Studies in Mission)

Finalist for the 1992 HarperCollins Religious Book Award

Kwame Bediako examines the question of Christian identity in the context of the Greco-Roman culture of the early Roman Empire. He then addresses the modern African predicament of quests for identity and integration.

"A book of quite outstanding importance"

It is rich and rewarding both in interpretation and in construction, furthering understanding of modern African Christianity and relating it to the Christian tradition as a whole. No previous work has covered this range, nor has the perennial question of Christ and culture been pursued with more depth and insight.
Andrew Walls, Formerly Director of the Centre for the Study of Christianity in the Non-Western World, University of Edinburgh.
