n Institute of African Studies Research Review - The challenges of theological education in Ghana

Supplement 9
  • ISSN : 0855-4412



The paper deals with an analysis of the historical trajectory of the evolution of theology in Africa, paying particular attention to the various concerns and influences that have shaped academic theology on the continent and its implication for the mission of the church in Africa. On the basis of this analysis a proposal in the form of theology of transformation is made to deal essentially with what appears to be gap between academic theology and the concerns of the people in the pews. The paper argues that bridging the gap between academia and the pew entails a radical rearrangement of the focus and orientation of theological education in Africa.
