      Christianity in modern Africa by, , Longman for the Historical Society of Nigeria edition, in English.   Thomas C. Oden surveys the decisive role of African Christians and theologians in shaping the doctrines and practices of the church of the first five centuries, and makes an impassioned plea for the rediscovery of that heritage. Christians throughout the world will benefit from this reclaiming of an important heritage.

      To discuss the question that Christianity should not influence African Religion, but that African Religion can also enrich Christianity, it is important to state what the two religions are and the misunderstanding that has locked up the two Religions. It is equally very essential to mention the concepts, which were at one time concrete to African Traditional Religion. A new book consisting of essays by 30 evangelical Christians of different political and professional stripes is calling on white evangelicals to rethink their support for President Donald Trump in and warns the president is damaging the broader culture’s perception of evangelical Christianity.

However, the major part of the book looks at the three great survivals of Christianity in Africa: first there are the Copts in Egypt, who invented monasticism, and survive to this day despite the onslaught of Mohammedanism.

Thomas C. Oden (Ph.D., Yale University) is the director of the Center for Early African Christianity and formerly Henry Anson Buttz Professor of Theology at The Theological School of Drew University in Madison, New Jersey.

He is general editor of the Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture and the Ancient Christian Doctrine series on the Nicene by:   The blending of religious traditions is nothing new to the African people. Even given the colonial experience African peoples “sometimes earnestly try to practice the dominant religion, and in doing so they bring new life into it, as in the lively practice of Christianity in rural Africa” (Fisher 50).

The first edition of The Next Christendom has been hailed as a landmark in our understanding of modern Christianity. In this new and substantially expanded second edition, Jenkins continues to illuminate the remarkable expanion of Christianity in the global South--in Africa, Asia, and Latin America--as well as the clash betwen Islam and Christianity since September /5().

It is a qualitative study of how Christians manage to be at the same time involved in African traditional religions, of which the Christian church.

Christianity in Africa arrived in Egypt in the middle of the 1st century. By the end of the 2nd century it had reached the region around the 4th century, the Aksumite empire in modern day Eritrea and Ethiopia became one of the first regions in the world to adopt Christianity as an official religion and the Nubian kingdoms of Nobatia, Makuria and Alodia followed two centuries later.

The history of Christianity in Africa probably began during the earthly ministry of Jesus Christ, two thousand years ago.
