Abstract:This book on proselytization in Africa is part of a wider project addressing issues of conflict between competing claims to religious freedom, on the one hand, and 'communal' self-determination, on the other, in the context of three regions: Eastern Europe, Latin America, and Africa. The volume moves from broader theoretical analysis to specific case studies: Introduction: competing claims to religious freedom and communal self-determination in Africa (Abdullahi Ahmed An-Na'im) - Religous proselytization: historical and theological perspectives at the end of the twentieth century (J. Paul Martin and Harry Winter) - Muslims engaging the Other and the Humanum (Farid Esack) - Church and State relations: Western norms, Muslim practice, and the African experience: a comparative account of origin and practice (Lamin Sanneh) - Religious freedom in African constitutions (J.D. Van der Vyver) - Postcolonial State strategies, sacralization of power and popular proselytization in Congo-Zaire, 1960-1995 (Tshikala K. Biaya) - Returning to my roots: African 'religions' and the State (Makau Mutua) - Scramble for souls: religious intervention among the Dinka in Sudan (Francis M. Deng) - Muslim proselytization as purification: religious pluralism and conflict in contemporary Mali (Benjamin F. Soares) - Radical Christian revivalism in Nigeria and Ghana: recent patterns of intolerance and conflict (Rosalind I.J. Hackett) - Religious fragmentation in Kenya (Hannah W. Kinoti) - Islamism in Algeria: the risks and prospects of inter-Islamic proselytization (Chabha Bouslimani).
