dc.description.abstract Abstract provided by author en_US
dc.description.abstract African Christianity requires an African expression that is in harmony with Africa's cultural heritage. Christ should be given an African image that is understood in the traditional and cultural setting of Africa. Christianity can only become an integral aspect of life for African Christians if it touches their lives in their social and cultural environment. This study shows the links between the nature of the ancestors in traditional African belief and the nature of Jesus, particularly by assessing his 'ancestorship', his role as healer and mediator inter alia en_US
dc.description.abstract Introducing a study of this nature helps the African Christians not to live a dualistic life with one foot in the world of Western Christianity and the other one in their traditional world. en_US
