African Cry is liberation theology with African content and original method--in short, a model of African liberation theology. Its translation into the English language is a big contribution to the corpus of literature on African liberation theology available to the English-speaking public. For those who are not already familiar with its French version, it provides a new dimension in African theology. The book is a must for all students of African theology."" --Justin S. Ukpong, Catholic Institute of West Africa, Nigeria African Cry is fundamentally a challenge to all who claim adherence to the Christian faith. It explores the Scriptures, particularly the Gospels, in the light of what passes for Christianity and Mission on the part of European and Caucasian thinking, attitudes, and behavior on the continent of Africa. The book is a magnificent presentation of the problems that the African and African-American have with the behavior and attitudes of Church people from the highest to the lowest levels. This book should be read by as many Christians as possible, and, above all, bishops, particularly European and American."" --Lawrence E. Lucas, author of Black Priest/White Church African Cry shatters the self-censorship of sub-Saharan African theologians on political-economic issues while retaining their deep concern for cultural liberation. It is now impossible to discuss African theology without reference to Ela."" --Marie Giblin, Associate Professor of Theology, Xavier University A vigorous, frank, and uncompromising series of essays by a young, rural-based Cameroonian priest. The stress is on the interrelatedness of inculturation, liberation, and authenticity. The cry is for the right to be different. A superb example of the strongly-felt anguish of committed African priests for a church at once credible and rooted in reality."" --Simon E. Smith, SJ, former Coordinator of the Jesuit Refugee Service in Africa Jean-Marc Ela is a Cameroonian theologian. He is also the author of My Faith as an African.
