This essay is about the significance of the church for African theological reflection. It argues that in order to uncover the complexity and contradictions within African Christianity as well as the challenges facing African Christians in the twenty-first century, theological reflection must both be grounded in, and reflect, the concrete life of Christian communities in Africa.
