Catholics in Africa and beyond need to share the richness of African theology for a better understanding of this type of Christian theology, an African award-winning Priest has said.
Readers of a newly launched book are expected to gain deeper insight into the future of African Theology through “a baraza”, one of the editors of the book that is a tribute to an African scholar said at the book launch.
Honoring and celebrating living legends who shaped theology in Africa is expected to be the focus of a virtual biennial event that is organized by the Arrupe Jesuit Institute (AJI), a Ghana-based social justice centre of the Jesuit North-West Africa Province.
The Ratzinger Prize has, over the years, been awarded to scholars whose contribution to theology is considered outstanding in the spirit of the German theologian, Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger who became Pope Benedict XVI. Established in 2011, no African had ever featured among the winners of this prestigious prize. This year, Burkinabé Jesuit priest, Paul Béré made history as the first African ever to win the coveted prize. He will receive the award on November 9.
