Review

This book puts a face of hope and faith on Africa, the second largest and, for some, the most chaotic continent in the world. Through song, dance and drama, we learn of additional ways to pray and praise the God of all peoples, times and places. The insights offered in this volume come from authors who thoroughly know and love Africa and, through their insights, further our understanding of how God is moving in the world through music and faith. A significant addition to the literature on music and mission. --C. Michael Hawn, Professor of Church Music and Director of the Sacred Music Program, Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University

This volume is an important addition to music scholarship because it provides perspectives on the impact and influence of Christianity on African musics and religions. In addition to providing a clear and concise discussion of the history of Christianity in Africa, the book includes information on other important topics: African cultures and religions before contact with Europe; types of musics, ideas, and values Europeans brought with them to Africa; and the response of various African communities to the religion, music, and worship experience of Europeans. At a time when Christianity is exploding on the global scene, this book provides insight into some of the musical processes and creations that can develop when different cultures interact. Music in the Life of the African Church is also an essential text for students in African Studies, ethnomusicology, religion, and other disciplines in the arts and humanities for it serves as a model for understanding the growth and expansion of Christian music globally. --Jacqueline Cogdell DjeDje, Chair and Professor, Department of Ethnomusicology, University of California, Los Angeles
