Inus Daneel grew up on the Morgenster mission in Masvingo Province, Zimbabwe. From early childhood he maintained friendships with Shona people, and developed an intimate knowledge of their language, customs, worldview and religious practices. Later, as a missiologist, he did extensive research on traditional African religion and on African Initiated Churches in the region.
