Volume 1, Issue 2 (2017) African Catholicism: Contemporary Issues

Overview

A consideration of contemporary issues in African Catholicism, including liturgical adaptation, music, communication, moral theology, and priestly ministry. Articles focus specifically on Nigerian Catholic experience, but also range broadly to engage with themes important to Catholics in sub-Saharan Africa. Among the specific questions addressed are: inculturation; uses of mass media and the promotion of social justice; moral relativism and the applicability of natural law theory; polygamy; and African and Western paradigms for defining the role of the priest. Official Catholic documents considered are Ecclesia in Africa and Evangelicum Gaudium.
