Professor Nkansah Obrempong explore the relevance of the Akan religio-cultural heritage-- its proverbs, myths, metaphors and symbols-- for Christian theology. The author discusses the African religio-cultural heritage showing its impact on African Christian thought. He examines the cultural and religious contexts of the Akan people where he argues that Akan ontology and cosmology form the basis of Akan philosophical thought and epistemology and that Akan proverbs, myths, metaphors and symbols about God are the result of the Akans’ reflection on their religious experience of God. He draws out the theological meaning of these materials in relation to God and looks at the theological themes that emerged by pointing out their implications for the doctrine of God. He points out the Ancestor-King Model in the Akan religio-cultural context provides a new idiom and rich insights for Akan Christians to understand the nature and character of God. The implications of this “new approach” for the doctrine of God and for Christian theology are pointed out. This book is a major cnotribution to African Christian Theologgy
