AFST584 Church in Contemporary Africa: Its Political, Social, and Economic Situation (4 cr.)


The course analyzes the role of the church in contemporary African situations. The course encourages and enables students to do further studies on the role the church can play in contemporary Africa. The central focus of the course is to analyze and describe some of the major issues found in Africa today. These issues are political, social, and cultural in nature. The whole thrust is to show that the church is operating in a wider social context and it is in such context that she is called to serve. The analysis and description are mainly sociological in nature, that is, the tools for analysis are drawn from that discipline although some theological ideas are referenced.
