AFRICAN, BLACK AND AIC THEOLOGIES AS THE MAIN HISTORICAL SOURCES OF CONSTRUCT FOR AN AFRICAN CHURCH

VS Molobi

Abstract



This paper is attempting to engage a broader historical discourse by Mugambi in African
Christian �theologies� although, plurality of theology seem not to be his interest. In some
instances this article tried to challenge some of his thoughts particularly on Black
Theology. This might be regarded as notoriety, but it is merely intended to test his. African
Theology, Black Theology and the AICs are the initiatives of the African scholarship. Many
theologies emerged alongside African Theology, particularly in South Africa which may
sometimes seemed to be challenging African Theology itself. Mugambi and some prominent
African theologians seem to be somehow deterred by this and want Black Theology to take
a back sit in favour of African Theology. Some African scholars are adamant that Black
Theology is still relevant in places where racism has left its legacies which affect people
badly even in a democratic South Africa. These three trends of theology seemed to be
carrying vital weight which none of them its own can provide, therefore to me the issue of
coexistence is crucial.
