Resumen

ADAMO, David T.. Christianity and the African traditional religion(s): The postcolonial round of engagement. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2011, vol.32, n.1, pp.1-10. ISSN 2074-7705.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/ve.v32i1.285.

This article concerned itself with the modern encounter between Christianity and African Indigenous Religion (AIR) in Africa. It is essentially a postcolonial approach to what AIR and its essential characteristics is: God and humanity, sacrifices, afterlife and ancestors. The rapid growth of many religions in Africa and the revival of AIR in postcolonial Africa have made inter-religious dialogue an urgent necessity. Unlike the colonial encounter with AIR, which was characterised byhostility and the condemnation of AIR, the postcolonial encounter should be characterised by mutual respect, understanding, tolerance, and some level of freedom, liberation and genuineness. In this way, suspicion will be reduced, because despite the adherents' confession of Christianity, AIR is not about to be extinct.
