Understanding Religion and Social Change in Ethiopia: Toward a Hermeneutic of Covenant (BOK)
Sendes vanligvis innen 5-15 dager
This volume investigates how social change has played out in the social and political history of the ancient society that is now contemporary Ethiopia. Mohammed Girma reveals why abrupt political change with no anchor in grassroots sensibility has not suited the native religious value-laden system, and calls instead for the continuity of certain elements of traditional values. Understanding Religion and Social Change in Ethiopia deftly utilizes the idea of 'covenant' thinking in negotiating a new vision of social change without sacrificing cultural identity.
