Quote of the Week

"The missionaries who introduced the gospel to Africa in the past two hundred years did not bring God to our continent. Instead, God brought them."

John Mbiti, Professor Emeritus at the University of Bern



See Mbiti's article on "The Encounter of Christian Faith and African Religion."

As a former missionary to Tanzania, Zimbabwe and Mozambique, I can affirm the words of Mbiti. Christians in the USA should listen to the wisdom of Christians in Africa and other parts of the world. They are now God's messengers to us.
