Zionist Christian Church in South Africa. A Case Study in Oral Theology
1995 0-7734-9147-3
The over-rationalisation of the church has alienated it from the people at the grassroots level by alienating itself from the holistic emphases of the Christian message. The author proposes a more balanced approach to theology and warns against the predominant Western-oriented disposition to theology in the African context. As hymns and choruses play such a vital role in the dynamic mini-churches related to the AIC, the author's excellent study of these hymns presents a well-documented analysis of a major devotional activity.
