From Liberation to Reconstruction explores the role of Christian theology in the reconstruction of Africa. Its theme is evoked partly by the changes that have taken place during the 1960s, £1970s and 1980s, and partly by the emergence of the 'New World Order' after the end of colonialism, apartheid and the cold war.
The book introduces reconstruction as a new paradigm for p African Christian theology in the New World Order. It will be useful to theologians of ail doctrinal persuasions, considering that the task of reconstruction cannot be restricted to any religion or denominational confines. It will also be useful to both trainers and trainees in humanities and social sciences, with particular reference to Africa.
