  4. African Hermeneutics
    African Hermeneutics
    ISBN: 9781783684649

    Interpretation of Scripture occurs within one’s worldview and culture, which enhances our understanding and ability to apply Scripture in the world. However, few books address Bible interpretation from an African perspective and no other textbook uses the intercultural approach found here.

  5. 2 Peter and Jude
    2 Peter and Jude
    ISBN: 9781783684601

    Shorter books in the Bible like 2 Peter and Jude are often overlooked by believers as they flick through pages of Scripture.

Yet the evils these authors speak about are still present in the church in Africa, and are no less deserving of judgement today. But these books also bear glorious testimony to God’s power to...

    ISBN: 9789966062291

    Francinah Baloyi was sixteen when the ancestors demanded that she continue the family tradition and be trained as a sangoma, one through whom the spirits would speak.
