While sitting reflectively watching
the smoke emerging from his wife's kitchen, this African villager
recounts his thoughts and observations on just three days of village
life. On Friday, his boss tries to deal with a fall in profit margins
of the company he works for. Saturday's account explains some of the
intrigues surrounding just another village funeral. Village
Christianity becomes the focus of the Sunday. Read this intriguing
little diary, a close literal translation from an original in Dholuo
(of western Kenya), to begin to acquire fascinating insights into
contemporary village life as an African Christian man.
This book is suitable to be used as a part of courses on missions,
African Christianity and culture, development and inter-cultural
communication at undergraduate and graduate levels.
