Collectivist cultures have a clearer awareness of the social implications of salvation as illustrated well by African Christologies. One example is Mugambi’s theology of reconstruction which integrates the salvation and liberation paradigms by recognizing that inner change through personal encounters with Christ leads to outward social change as a result of living into the new demands of His Kingdom. Stinton, 223.

Library descriptions.

This comprehensive study of African Christology includes accounts of academic Christologies from French- and English-speaking Africa, but perhaps most importantly, reports on the views of ordinary Africans on Jesus and their relationship with him.

In Jesus of Africa, Diane Stinton seeks to capture images of Jesus in Africa according to images and words used by Africans. In doing so, she hopes to use the voices of Africans to support and critique the images brought forth and to evaluate their appropriateness for deepening the Christian faith in the African context. One important note is that in her research, Stinton focuses on the missional churches as opposed to indigenous-founded churches. Stinton carries out her research through literature review and extensive field research (interviews and focus groups) in Kenya, Ghana and Uganda in the years 1998 and 1999. Stinton's presentation of her findings is academic, appropriate for theologians, professors, students or missionaries.
