Emmauel Katongole is a Catholic priest from Uganda, born in 1960, who lived through the reign of Idi Amin and has seen the postcolonial struggles of his home country and its sub-Saharan neighbors Rwanda, the Congo, Zimbabwe, Liberia, and others up close and personal. Looking at this region, ravaged by war, corruption, terror, genocide, and disease, Katongole wonders at length what difference Christianity makes or could make in numerous African nation-states. The Sacrifice of Africa argues that in the face of Africas social, political, and economic turmoil, a new future truly is possible, and displays how such a new future, inspired by Christian faith, looks.
-Publisher

Can Christianity be a force that unleashes true social and political transformation in troubled Africa? In this text, Katongole - a Catholic priest from Uganda who has witnessed firsthand the post-colonial struggles of his home country and its sub-Saharan neighbours - argues that it can.
