ᑄ ❤ How Africa Shaped the Christian Mind: Rediscovering the African Seedbed of Western Christianity eBook: Thomas C. Oden: Amazon.fr: Amazon Media EU S.à r.l. download ⡇ Kindle Ebook By Thomas C Oden ⣚ Where is the cradle of ChristianityEurope or Africa After teaching historical and systematic theology, Oden is surprisingly just discovering what other scholars have argued for some time that the earliest contours of Christianity can be easily traced to Africa After all, Origen, Clement of Alexandria, Tertullian, Plotinus and Augustineto name only a few early Christian thinkerswere Africans In this tiresome and repetitious book, Oden belabors the already well established notion that Christianity s roots can be found in Africa He does draw helpfully on his work on the Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture series to demonstrate that the intellectual contours of Christianityacademics, exegesis, dogmatics, ecumenics, monasticism, philosophy, and dialecticsdeveloped in Africa However, Peter Brown Augustine of Hippo and other writers have clearly recognized this contribution, and Oden s nave and hyperbolic book is embarrassing than enlightening Oden s study is most suited to those who are entirely new to the debate and who will benefit from resources such as a time line of early African Christianity and a reading list for further investigation of the subject Jan Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.Africa has played a decisive role in the formation of Christian culture from its infancy Some of the most decisive intellectual achievements of Christianity were explored and understood in Africa before they were in Europe.If this is so, why is Christianity so often perceived in Africa as a Western colonial import How can Christians in Northern and sub Saharan Africa, indeed, how can Christians throughout the world, rediscover and learn from this ancient heritage Theologian Thomas C Oden offers a portrait that challenges prevailing notions of the intellectual development of Christianity from its early roots to its modern expressions The pattern, he suggests, is not from north to south from Europe to Africa, but the other way around He then makes an impassioned plea to uncover the hard data and study in depth the vital role that early African Christians played in developing the modern university, maturing Christian exegesis of Scripture, shaping early Christian dogma, modeling conciliar patterns of ecumenical decision making, stimulating early monasticism, developing Neoplatonism, and refining rhetorical and dialectical skills.He calls for a wide ranging research project to fill out the picture he sketches It will require, he says, a generation of disciplined investigation, combining intensive language study with a risk taking commitment to uncover the truth in potentially unreceptive environments Oden envisions a dedicated consortium of scholars linked by computer technology and a common commitment that will seek to shape not only the scholar s understanding but the ordinary African Christian s self perception.
