Invitation to Book Launch and Discussion
in Bonn, Leipzig and Berlin
Christianity, Development and Modernity in Africa
Prof. Paul Gifford (SOAS University)
Paul Gifford will present the findings of his recent book "Christianity, Development and Modernity in Africa”. He argues that ‘African Christianity’ comes in very different forms, with very different consequences for development. He observes an unremarked diversity within African Christianity; on the one hand, an enchanted Christianity that views the world as pervaded by spiritual forces, and on the other a disenchanted Christianity that discounts such forces. We will discuss with him and the discussants, how Christian belief influences development in Africa.
How faith based organizations impact development in Africa and if development cooperation should ultimately engage more with religious actors? Please see the individual invitations attached for the different locations.
Registrations are necessary for Berlin and Bonn, please find further details in the respective invitation.
