Abstract:This book presents multidisciplinary perspectives on the religious beliefs and practices of the peoples in Africa. Contributions in part I concentrate on methodological approaches to religion in Africa from anthropological, philosophical and historical perspectives, contributions in part II focus on different religions practized, respectively African indigenous religions, Christianity, Islam and Hinduism. Contributions in part III attempt to clarify the intersection of culture and religion in Africa, including topics such as the arts, health, politics, globalization and the economy. Collectively, the book offers insights into both the historical developments in African religions and contemporary religious issues, including the development of African-initiated churches, neo-traditional religions, Pentecostalism, African indigenous religions and gender relations.
