Review

This book was written by thirty authors from different backgrounds and disciplines with a single purpose of heralding transformation and change in the Church of God through his son Jesus Christ. One can see the devotion and passion of the writers in the book chapters that dwell on issues relevant to matter of the church in Africa to the witness of the church to our God and his son Jesus Christ. The main point of the book is that the church should not remain lethargic but use the platform of public theology as a way of restructuring Africans lifestyle and intentional actions to the way that is pleasing God.

The book completely transmute itself with the ideals and philosophy of the agenda which has been the focus of the Organization of African Unity (OAU). The document containing the agenda 2063 plays a key role in the ideas behind the writing of the book. The agenda was fashioned by African leaders on the need to focus and re-prioritize Africa’s agenda from the struggle against apartheid to achieve independence for the continent. According to Professor Sundai Bobai Agang, believers in Jesus Christ have to remember that the Bible call Christians who are God’s children as the ‘light of the world’’ charging them to wake up, shine and illuminate over the darkness. He likened Christians to the salt as stated in the Bible urging them to shine the light in Africa. The book is a must for all those raising God fearing leaders around the world.
