The great Pope John Paul the Second is renowned all over the world for his many missions to spread the faith and his Marian devotion. He is also famous for his many writings on the significance of women in the Catholic Church. In “Woman as Mother and Wife in the African Context of the Family in the Light of John Paul II’s Anthropological and Theological Foundation”, author Joseph Okech Adhunga has written a truly illuminating read on the roles and significance of women in the Catholic Church in the modern age.
“Woman as Mother and Wife in the African Context of the Family in the Light of John Paul II’s Anthropological and Theological Foundation” is author Joseph Okech Adhunga’s highly informative study that examines the theological and anthropological foundations of the understanding of the dignity and vocation of woman as a mother and wife, gifts given by God that expresses the riches of the African concept of family. This book takes place in African Culture within the Bantu and Nilotic Tribes of Kenya, but its application is to open other societies through the enculturation theology to understand the anthological dignity and vocation of woman. The book aims to open eyes of the readers to recognize and respect woman as mother of human life.
The theology of enculturation as presented in this dissertation opens the way for the integration of the theological anthropological teachings of John Paul II in understanding African woman as mother and wife.
