This thesis addresses the doctrine of revelation as it relates to the field of African Christian theology. Given the need for contextual theologies, it examines both general and special revelation as these doctrines have been understood and applied by a variety of African theologians. Specific areas of application include the use of the Bible and the attitude toward African traditional religions.
