How & Why to Enhance Christian Influence in African Politics

Christian Theology

African Christian leaders and preachers have over the years made politics to seem a darkroom with monstrous images. The average African Christian has been directed away from active participation in politics. This book demystifies the myths and imagery fear instilled in African Christians about politics. It starts by showing the similarities between Christian Theology and Political Science as branches of social science. It shows why and how Christianity can contribute to societal organization, transformation and development.

The author use African story telling power, creative writing skill and biblical exegesis to introduce the readers into very knotty subject: Christianity and Politics is a subject that majority of African preachers avoid. There are limited materials on the subject. There is scarcity of literature that inspires African Christians to rise and take decisions bordering on their socioeconomic destinies. To write such material is seen as ‘political’, ‘secular’ or non-spiritual. But the author brings his bluntness of activism and passion for transformation to bear.
