The Christian Chapter in the History of African Religion: The Primal Religions as the Substructure of Contemporary Christianity

November 8, 2013

Professor Andrew F. Walls, University of Edinburgh, Liverpool Hope University, and Akrofi-Christaller Institute, concluded OMSC's eighth Distinguished Mission Lectureship series—five lectures with discussions—with this Friday lecture. During the week, he explored Christian interaction with indigenous or "primal" religions from the Greco-Roman world and pre-Christian Europe to present-day Africa, Americas, and Asia-Pacific, and considers the special significance of the Old Testament in this connection.
