"[By] Samuel Kobia".
Includes bibliographical references and bibliography: p. 214-218.
The author, a Methodist minister from Kenya, was elected as the sixth general secretary of the World Council of Churches in August 2003. In this book he "examines the reality and potential of contemporary Africa. He raises the existential surveys the legacy of Africa, `the primordial home of all humanity' in which was woven the fabric from which human culture has been fashioned. He describes the African moral universe predicated on a relational web connecting all creation. He affirms that the African sense of identity growing from ancient traditions provides a rich spiritual resource for shaping a new Africa. Addressing threats to the future of Africa -- among them racism, neo-colonialism, poverty, corruption in government and HIV/AIDS -- the author advocates for a transformation of consciousness based in the reaffirmation of human dignity. And as an expression of `the courage to hope', concludes Kobia, the world's churches are being called to become sanctuaries of life in the face of death". -- back cover.

"[By] Nicholas Otieno with Hugh McCullum".
Includes bibliographical references (p. [183]-187).
"On the afternoon of a hot southern African summer day in the capital city of Zimbabwe, some 1000 participants at the eighth assembly of the World Council of Churches engaged in a deliberative session on `Ubuntu and the African kairos'. It was 8 December 1998, the 50th anniversary of the founding of the WCC. A local Zimbabwean theatre group enacted a powerful political drama entitled `A Journey of Hope'. This was the beginning -- or launch -- of a pilgrimage of conversion, commitment, and above all accompaniment. It was agreed that the focus on Africa would be one of wholehearted support for the churches and peoples of the continent. There would be an emphasis on transformation of Africa's social, political and economic systems in order to create a just society in which women and young people, too, would participate fully. Peace and reconciliation would be sought between people and communities. Everything within the church's power would be devoted to help contain and overcome the scourge of HIV and AIDS. Good governance, ethical values and stewardship would be emphasized. And the churches affirmed the rights of African children to hope for a bright future which, with all their strength and ability, they would help to create". -- back cover.
