Theological ReimaginationTheological Reimagination: Conversations on Church, Religion, and Society in Africa, edited by Agbonkhianmeghe E. Orobator SJ (Nairobi: Paulines Publications Africa, 2014), 304 pages, ISBN: 9966-08-862-8.

Focusing on church, religion, and society in Africa, this project gathers African theologians in conversation about issues that shape all three institutions. As the title indicates, their conversations pivot on “reimagination,” and the choice is not arbitrary. Imagination relates to the power the mind to undo the confines of the status quo and scale seemingly insurmountable boundaries with boundless creativity and audacity. Applied to theology, reimagination creates alternative worlds of meaning and purpose that embody God’s self-revelation in innovative and creative ways. Theological reimagination depicts the central task of this research project and the commitment of each participant and author.
