Il volume raccoglie undici saggi originariamente presentati ad una Conferenza internazionale, tenutasi a Nairobi (Kenya) dal 23 al 27 settembre 2019, sulle sfide odierne al lavoro missionario e alla riflessione teologica in Africa. Gli organizzatori – Tangaza University College (Nairobi), missio-Aachen, Pontificia Università Urbaniana –, hanno individuato tre aree centrali da esplorare in una prospettiva africana: 1) evangelizzazione e inculturazione, 2) il volto femminile della missione, 3) missione e sviluppo.
Si tratta del primo convegno internazionale a livello continentale organizzato per il 400° anniversario della fondazione di “Congregatio de Propaganda Fide” (1622), odierna Congregazione per l'Evangelizzazione dei Popoli.
The present volume assembles eleven essays that were originally presented at an international Conference, held in Nairobi (Kenya) from 23rd to 27th September 2019, on today’s challenges to mission work and mission theology in Africa. The organizers of the Conference – Tangaza University College (Nairobi), missio-Aachen and the Pontifical Urbaniana University –, have identified three core areas to explore from an African perspective: 1) evangelization and inculturation, 2) the female face of mission, and 3) mission and development.
This is the first international conference on a continental level organized to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the “Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples”, historically known as “Congregatio de Propaganda Fide”, founded in 1622.
