Tittel

Old Testament studies and social transformation in Africa

Sammendrag

The article - based on a keynote address for a conference on "Biblical studies and socio-religious transformation in Africa" (Kogi State University, Nigeria, July 2010) - analyzes three aspects of the role of the academic discipline of Old Testament studies in the contemporary process of social transformation in Africa. First, the interpretative context of African Old Testament studies is outlined from institutional and hermeneutic perspectives. Second, four case studies are presented, from East Africa (Kimilike), Southern Africa (Wafawanaka), Central Africa (Shaondo), and West Africa (the Nigerian Association for Biblical Studies). And third, some consequences are discussed, especially focusing the need for bridging research and study programs.
