Abstract:

"African Theology in Images is a comprehensive study of the role of art in the process of inculturation in Africa. The dialogue of images between African and biblical symbols enriches the debate on contextualizations with unique forms of authentic Christian expression, faithful to the African and the Christian tradition. During the past twenty years, one art centre has been truly outstanding in its exploration of its local African and Christian identity and its development of new ways to express it: the KuNgoni Art Craft Centre in Malawi. In paintings, carvings, and colourful liturgical celebrations the centre's artists have discovered and developed a unique mode of expression which is both African and Christian."--Jacket.
