Abstract

107 Not everyone would agree with everything or even most of what Father Hillman has said and suggested in his book, even at the risk of being branded pusillanimous. He obviously would not expect that concurrence either. Surely, some of the things he says have been said before, perhaps several times before, even if he puts them differently and more forcefully. As he himself points out, 'inculturation, is not a modern invention,' but `a discovery of what has been going on from the very beginning of the Christian move- ment, and before that in the history of Judaism.' Toward an African Christianity is yet another honest and painstak- ing effort to communicate a message and effect a change. But the question yet to be answered is, what real difference will this laudable endeavour also make? Only time will tell.
