African Theology in the 21st Century

Editors: Elias Omondi Opongo, SJ and Paul Béré, SJ 

A tribute to Rev. Professor Laurenti Magesa who has contributed to development of African Theology. Professor Magesa retired from active teaching at Hekima University College in May 2021, at the age of 75, but his legacy as a luminary and intuitive theologian remains.

The collection of articles in this book contributes to the debates, conversations, analyses, evaluation, and conceptualisation of the African Theology from different contextual aspirations and challenges by a wide array of African scholars.

The articles constitute a ‘baraza’, a Swahili word for a conversation to address an issue, and form part of Prof. Magesa's "Endless Quest" to make the Church in Africa truly African.

 WhyAllPeopleSufferWhy All People Suffer: How a Loving God Uses Suffering to Perfect Us

Paul Chaloux

Dr. Chaloux adjunct professor of theology at the Catholic University of America demonstrates that suffering is not retribution from an angry, vengeful God but the saving action of a loving God who directs us away from evil and toward eternal joy in Heaven.

Educated in his own school of suffering, Dr. Chaloux explains the four tasks of suffering that are essential in the economy of salvation and why, if suffering were to be abolished, no one would be saved.

Using well-known stories from Scripture and the lives of the saints, he explains numerous other aspects of God’s use of evil and suffering in His plan for our salvation.
