Bediako shows how intimately bound together are such elements as the message of Jesus and the struggle to give birth to African democracy. Citing Englebert Mveng, Bediako puts flesh on the idea that Christianity is today lived in local languages long before it is translated into English and French. The ten chapters of this book are the finest introduction available to understanding Christianity as lived by countless Africans in a high stakes search for liberation and peace.
