Using a framework of excerpts from Chinua Achebe's acclaimed novel, Things Fall Apart, Orobator introduces the major themes of Christian doctrine: God, Trinity, creation, grace and sin, Jesus Christ, church, Mary, the saints, inculturation, and spirituality. While explaining basic Christian beliefs, Theology Brewed in an African Pot also clarifies the differences between an African view of religion and a more Eurocentric understanding of religion offering a wider perspective on theology and culture. Each of the eleven short chapters ends with three discussion questions followed by one or two African prayers, providing an accessible and engaging introduction for students and study groups alike.
