The Development of the Doctrine of the Holy Spirit in the Yoruba (African) Indigenous Christian Movement by Caleb O. Oladipo
Publication Date: 1997-02-01
Africa will have more than 325 million Christians by the year 2000, making it the most populous Christian continent in the world. In this book, Dr. Oladipo addresses questions about Christian dogma as believers continue to enlarge the boundaries of Christian proclamation. He points out that conversion in Africa is the result of African ability to enliven cherished Christian doctrines in their indigenous definition of the Christian faith. The book touches a raw nerve by illustrating that religious awareness is the indivisible entity unified by particular human efforts to grasp the totality of existence. The Development of the Doctrine of the Holy Spirit in the Yoruba (African) Indigenous Christian Movement is unique and different, written in a spirit of mutual enrichment and transformation.
