Description

There is something special and unique about African spirituality that almost seems rooted in the soil of Africa and its people. Along with Paul, people in Africa understood that warfare is not within flesh and blood but within the principalities and rulers of this age in the spiritual realm.

Contemporary Western Christianity has by and large lost this perspective. But this does not mean the war is over. We can learn much from early African theologians such as Tertullian, Cyprian, Origen and Athanasius about the spiritual war we are engaged in. This session will make an initial foray into what these early African teachers have to offer 21st century Christians who are engaged in their own spiritual struggles.
