MORRIS-CHAPMAN, Daniel John Pratt. Ecclesia Ghana: Realising Afro-Catholicism in Ghana. Studia Hist. Ecc. [online]. 2015, vol.41, n.1, pp.86-104. ISSN 2412-4265. http://dx.doi.org/10.17159/2412-4265/2015/v41n1a7.
What is the essence of the Gospel? Which aspects of the church's ministry are contingent? The story of the Anglican Church in Ghana offers an opportunity to reflect upon these questions. While the history of this colonial church is fraught with ethnocentrism, it also demonstrates a number of ways in which a rich theological tradition can be realised on Ghanaian soil. This essay explores these possibilities with the hope of identifying an authentic Afro-Catholicism.
