AFRICAN ROOTS:
Towards An Afrocentric Christian Witness




"This book had its conception in the planning for the historic Pan African Christian Church Conference I (PACCC I) which was held at the Interdenominational Theological  Center (ITC) in July 1988.  The conference brought together students, church leaders, and scholars from South, Central, and North America, Africa, the Caaribbean, the Pacific, and Asia.  The daughters and sons of BlackAfrica and the African diaspora gathered to reflect on their faith journey, to share their presentsitutions and to descern the leading of the Holy Spirit into the future...The need to affirm our identity, to overcome ourself-estrangement, to know who our people are and to develop an appreciation of our heritage and countribution to world culture is the wellspring of this book."  (R. Dixon, from the Introduction & Purpose)
