The Priest as an Elder   

In the recent times there is a move to return to the African Traditional Religions. This resurgence has left many Christians in dilemma over what cultural practices to embrace and those they have to do away with. The author using the Agĩkũyũ culture inculturates the ministerial priesthood. He traces priesthood from antiquity, in the Bible and Church history. He also amalgamates the process of making an Agĩkũyũ Elder by tracing the origin of Agĩkũyũ from their progenitors Gĩkũyũ and Mumbi to the development of the office of the elder. Even though inculturation is generally embraced by African theologians, a summary of views in opposition to inculturation are presented and critiqued. Criteria by which a Christian can demarcate the cultural practices to participate in and to what extent is then provided and the ministerial priesthood inculturated. This work is insightful, analytical and relevant to the Christian theologian in these times. It is especially written with the modern missionary in mind with a view to enrich their approach for deeper evangelization.In the recent times there is a move to return to the African Traditional Religions.
