Theological and mission worlds have long known the need to radically reinterpret christology for cultural realms not formed by Israelite and Western religious and cultural traditions. This is an anthology of ten essays, written by French and English-speaking African theologians.

Anne NaSimiyu-Wasike gives a glimpse of what happens when one interprets Jesus from a woman's perspective. Cece Kokie asks if Jesus can be subsumed under the rubric of "healer." Anselme T. Sanon explores how Jesus can be the "master of initiation," Laurenti Magesa interprets him as "liberator," and Francois Kabasele as "chief, ancestor and elder brother."
