Hope in Suffering
An African Perspective
The book, Hope in Suffering: An African Perspective, discusses how Jesus’ resurrection is interpreted in Africa so as to instill hope among the suffering Africans.
It develops an appropriate hermeneutic for Jesus’ resurrection from an African perspective.
This is because interpretation of Jesus’ resurrection remains insufficient in African theology.
Generally, Africans understand Jesus’ resurrection as liberation from spiritual forces.
However, this is inadequate in the African context of suffering.
Hence, this book addresses the problem by developing a hermeneutic from an African perspective which provides hope in suffering.
