The Word of God in Africa


The Daughters of St. Paul of Abuja celebrated the 75th birthday of Cardinal John Olorunfemi Onaiyekan, Archbishop of the diocese, with the presentation of his new book, The Word of God in Africa. The volume is the third in a series of his writings entitled Seeking Common Grounds and Theology in Context.

One of the guest speakers at this event was the Sultan of the Caliphate of Sokoto, who is the king of Muslims in northwestern Nigeria and good friend of Cardinal Onaiyekan. The two have been working together for a long time to promote ecumenical and interreligious dialogue in view of furthering social justice, moral values, peace and freedom.

Our sisters write: “We are grateful to the Lord for the opportunity to publish a book on the Word of God in the Church of Africa. The text will be especially useful for seminarians, priests and religious, as well as for the laity.”
