Maybe due to her history of colonization, or other circumstances which I ignore, she has always found it difficult to boldly join the debate both in systematic theology and in that of the history of theology.
So, systematic theology as we know it today was principally the brain child of western theologians or non western theologians with western mindset. However, in the recent years, other regions started joining the discussion.
Among these theologians, there are those that anybody who has attended even a single course of theology will be able to remember or must have heard of. Some are known mainly by those who have had more theological studies, but their names are as well household names in those different fields they are specialized in.
In this text, we intend to show how theologians from different regions of the world helped, through mature reflections on their contextual experience of God, to solve universal theological difficulties. We would also want to show how Africa can stand on her two feet and once and for all bring something tangible to this table of theological discussion.
This is why the Ancient and Medieval histories of theology are all full of European imprints. Even the systematic theology like anthropological theology, fundamental theology, dogmatic, theology, ecclesiology, Christology, pastoral theology, etc., were all initially based on the European experience of God.
