BANDA, Zuze e SAAYMAN, Willem. Renaissance and rebirth: A perspective on the African Renaissance from Christian mission praxis. Missionalia (Online) [online]. 2015, vol.43, n.2, pp.131-152. ISSN 2312-878X. http://dx.doi.org/10.7832/43-2-91.
The authors analyse the present state of the debate with regards to the African Renaissance, and come to the conclusion that the religious or faith dimensions have been neglected thus far. They regard this as a mistake, given the very important position that religious adherence occupies in African society. They propose that this mistake be rectified, arguing specifically from the perspective of Christian mission, where rebirth plays an important role. They propose that the implementation of the African Renaissance be correlated to the seven stages of the cycle of mission praxis.
