Orishatukeh Faduma: Liberal Theology and Evangelical Pan-Africanism, 1857-1946 (ATLA Monograph #40) (Hardcover)
Moore provides new insights into the complex and crucial role which the Protestant liberal theology of the evangelical missionary enterprise played in the evolution of Pan-Africanism. He also challenges the traditional interpretations that depict Africans and African-Americans as passive recipients of Western theology and missiology. Moore begins with an overview of the recent literature and introduces the missiological roots of evangelical Pan-Africanism. He then examines the synthesis of theological liberalism and Pan-Africanism as reflected in the writings and activities of Orishatukeh Faduma, who attempted to adapt theological liberalism and its missiological and educational tenets to the Pan-African cause. With bibliography.
