What is the state of humankind?The answer to that question is inherently theological, for it presupposes theological understandings of how humankind came to be, how it fits into the natural order, and how its current condition measures up to its origins. Much has been written of Western responses to the question, but with The Human Condition Joe M Kapolyo brings us an African Christian perspective that is refreshing and enlightening.Conversant with contemporary culture and aware of Western understandings, Kapolyo reconceptualizes the human condition as he discusses time, sin, community, family and virtue with reference to African history and cultural anthropology. The resulting mosaic provides a backdrop for the Bible's presentation of the human condition: created in the image of God, intended for one another, vulnerable to sin but watched over by a loving God.ContentsSeries PrefacePrefaceAcknowledgmentsSelected Bemba Glossary1.
