This exciting volume exemplifies the church of dialogue and solidarity that Pope Francis has called for. Here leading voices from Africa grapple with Fratelli Tutti's summons to replace violence and inequality with creative openness to the gifts of others. These probing essays illustrate both the fraternity/sorority deeply rooted in African culture and the hope for a better society inspired by the Gospel. Prof. William T. Cavanaugh DePaul University Chicago,USA

This volume is a milestone in Catholic theology. The editors not only succeeded in making Africa's voice heard in the concert of theology, but rather, the contributions in this volume contain reflections that are ground-breaking for the theology of the Global South beyond Africa, but also for the church as a whole. They give the theology of the Catholic Church a direction in which it ill again be relevant to the salutary development of the whole earth-in the sign of dialogue, justice, solidarity and sensitivity to the wounds and joys of humanity, especially of the poor and marginalised. Prof. Kurt Appel University of Vienna,Austria

Pope Franci's Fratelli Tutti has inspired commendations and commentaries since its publication. In this important book, an array of seasoned African scholars and theologians in well researched essays have added the African voice in the ongoing reception and interpretation of the encyclical. Reading through this book, one is compelled to say that the commentary on this papal document is now complete, particularly from an African perspective.   +Camillus Raymond Umoh Bishop, Catholic Diocese of Ikot Ekpene.
