This is a provocative and highly original approach to Catholic Christianity in Africa. The author contends that European colonialism has imposed such a fundamentally foreign style of religion on Africans that it denigrates and destroys the converts' connection with African culture. For Christianity to become at home in Africa completely, argues Hillman, it must take on African rites and attitudes. The author gives a fascinating look at the traditional African (Maasai) religious practices. He then goes on to suggest a radical transformation and acculturation of Christianity that might include ritual animal sacrifice and polygamy.
