Tayyi and God : the anthropology of God from an African perspective

Sammendrag

The creation and development of an African Christian image of God is the main topic of this article. Through studies of the Dii people and Norwegian missionaries in North Cameroon the study seeks to explore how the social background of the two participants in this worldview encounter influenced the image of God which they brought to 'the lang conversation' of conversion to Christianity. The supreme God of the Dii universe, Tayyi, was presented by the the Dii informants as a distant force which organised society and was a fence against chaos. Gud, the Norwegian version of a Christian God, is through the mission sources portrayed as a freedom loving, civilised deity who demanded certain technical skills from the believers.
