The Repression, Resistance, and Revival of the Ancestor Cult in the Shona Churches of Zimbabwe
A Study in the Persistence of A Traditional Religious BeliefeBook - 2010
This historical analysis of the evangelization of the Shona by both European missionaries and native evangelists examines the idea of a cross-cultural blending of Christianity and the Shona to create an Africanized Christianity. The author proposes a Christological approach where Jesus is seen as the ancestor par excellence in whom physical and spiritual needs are fulfilled.
