The courage to hope : the roots for a new vision and the calling of the church in Africa by Samuel Kobia( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Courage to Hope, Samuel Kobia examines the reality and potential of contemporary Africa. He raises the existential question "How are we to live authentic lives in the face of untold suffering and apparent social nihilism within the continent of Africa?"" "Kobia surveys the legacy of Africa, "the primordial home of all humanity" in which was woven the fabric from which human culture has been fashioned. He describes the African moral universe predicated on a relational web connecting all creation. He affirms that the African sense of identity growing from ancient traditions provides a rich spiritual resource for shaping a new Africa." "Addressing threats to the future of Africa - among them racism, neocolonialism, poverty, corruption in government and HIV/AIDS - the author advocates for a transformation of consciousness based in the reaffirmation of human dignity. And as an expression of "the courage to hope," concludes Kobia, the world's churches are being called to become sanctuaries of life in the face of death."--BOOK JACKET
