SOME EXPRESSIONS OF AFRICAN HOSPITALITY TODAY
AbstractThe paper sets out to demonstrate that any emerging post Cold War theology, in Africa, ought to underline the concept of hospitality as it is not only an inherently African conception but more importantly, it is both a reconstructive and reconciliative element in the Africa of the 21st century. In particular, it is critical to include hospitality into the theological schema of reconstruction. To do this, it has attempted a survey on the socio-religious expressions of African hospitality – as it shows its relevance in our modern day African theological articulation.
