The Future of Religious Life in Africa
Edited By Blazio M Manobo SPB
This book is a reflection on the role of consecrated life today and in the future.
Religious life is undergoing great trials from several global influencing factors and the rise of liberal democracy. At the same time, the same globalisation is bringing new opportunities for consecrated life. The challenge of our generation is to provide a credible witness of our faith in Jesus Christ in the service of the mission of the Church.
Against this background, this book, The Future of Consecrated Life in Africa Today: Trials and Vision, tries to address various themes on religious life viewed from the modern perspective. Each theme addresses an aspect of religious life. The objective of this book is to proffer some reflections on our life as consecrated persons in Africa.
The book contains chapter contributions by some of the leading Clergy, Religious and Lay Academics working or who have worked in Africa..
