Africa, Christianity and the Bible: Our Global Destiny by Archbishop Doye T Agama
Tracing Africa’s history through the framework of the Holy Bible and of broader scholarship, this remarkable book uncovers the original Africans, their relationships with Ancient Greece, Israel, Mesopotamia and beyond, from the Patriarchs on through to the New Testament…The book asks what the world can learn from the new Pentecostal Churches, and considering the growth of AQIM, BOKO HARAM and ISIS, it shows the uneasy relationship between Islam and Christianity in Africa.

This is an important piece of work from both a Historical and theological perspective. It’s beautifully and simply written in a way that anyone can understand and covers a subject that stretches back to the beginnings not only of Christianity but also judaism, bringing the continent from which civilisation sprang into the spotlight as a major facctor in the Christian story as well as covering more recent and contemporary events. Some hard truths are addressed but the revelations make such truths worth bearing. Every Christian library should have this book in its collection. Ian of Ealing
Brilliant informative information. Even funny in places. A must read for those who are searching for the truth with regard to religion. Connie
Well written book promoting harmony across races – I have read this book and I recommend it as an insightful narrative of how religion has shaped us as a people. Although the stress in the book is on Africans and how they have contributed to Christianity as we know it today, this inspirational book should be read by all no matter where they are from as it brings to light how different people with different cultures stood together to propagate the truth and belief in the one God. It is particularly good as you read through it on how using the words chosen carefully by the author Archbishop Agama, people may be able to tolerate each other, seeing how we can all live together in harmony as history shows that has been mostly the case in times of earthly problems such as hunger, wars or deadly diseases. I would edge you to get a copy and read for yourself how God sees us as all equal and important before Him. Very well written analogy tracing the contributions of Africa to Christianity and the world we live in at large. Charles Leyman Kachitsa.
