Abstract:This book is the outcome of the meeting of representatives of Protestant churches, both ecumenical and evangelical, in Nairobi for the Second Pan African Christian Leadership Assembly (PACLA II). It contains commentary on all the books of the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, and essays based on biblical scholarship about a range of topics thought pertinent to the African context, including burial customs, debt, democracy, dreams, female genital mutilation, homosexuality, initiation rites, idolatory, land, legalism, marriage, divorce and remarriage, slavery, street children, the Bible and polygamy, taboos, wealth and poverty, weddings and 'lobola', widows and orphans, and witchcraft. It is the work of more than seventy authors. [ASC Leiden abstract]
