This collection of essays has sought to achieve a good representation of mentors,
colleagues and disciples from around the world. The contributions come from a variety of
countries, theological disciplines and perspectives, and represent either a direct
outworking of his vision and initiatives or a connection with them. Taken together, they
demonstrate Bediako’s conviction that the theological creativity emerging in Africa is also
for the benefit of the mission of the world church. All the essays key into the general theme from contributors' own particular perspectives and areas of specialisation and capture something of the vision that inspired Kwame Bediako, which he shared, and the legacy he has bequeathed. In addition, they make a contribution to a deep er understanding of world Christianity in our time and provide pointers to the ongoing sc holarly task in the service of the church in mission. For it is vital that we continue to see new facets of the diamond that is the universality of the Gospel, as lived and proclaimed thro ugh the world church.
