Catholic Church Leadership in Peace Building in Africa


Catholic Church Leadership in Peace Building in AfricaCatholic Church Leadership in Peace Building in Africa, 
edited by Elias Omondi Opongo SJ and David Kaulemu (Nairobi: Paulines Publications Africa, 2014), 240 pages. ISBN 9966-08-817-2.

This book is a collection of articles from different voices in Africa, expressing the role of the many Christian leaders who have transformed the society through their lives and commitment to justice and reconciliation. The authors have particularly been interested in identifying diverse categories of leaders, of both high and of low profile. In some cases, they have conducted direct interviews with the various leaders, while in others they have relied on documented material. The individuals in this book demonstrate that change can never simply happen without commitment to faith and human engagement with the reality that confronts them. They further indicate that it takes courage, commitment and faith to bring change to society. This book is certain to provoke debate on important issues facing the African continent today.
