Details: Product Description Thoughtful and challenging, this book argues for a reassessment of the role historically played by Islam in Africa, and offers new hope for in creased mutual understanding between African people of different faiths. Drawing on a wealth of sources, from the colonial period to the most up-to-date scholarship, the author challenges the widely held perception th at, while Christianity oppressed and subjugated the African people, Islam fitted comfortably into the indigenous landscape. Instead, this penetrating account reveals Muslim settlers to be as guilty of enforcing slavery and conversion as those of their more maligned sister tradition. Only with an acknowledgement of the true roles of both faiths in African history, suggests Azumah, can the people of both traditions move themselves and their continent towards a new future of tolerance and self-awareness. About the Author John Allembillah Azumah is presently Professor of World Christianity & Islam and Director of International Programs at Columbia Theological Seminary, Decatur. He was formerly based at the Henry Martyn Institute for Reconciliation and Understanding in Hyderabad, India. He is an expert on Islam in colonial Africa, and has published widely on this subject.
