Christianity in Africa has recorded tremendous growth and transformation over the years. However, the proliferation of churches on the continent has brought both dignity and disrepute to the image of Christianity and religious syncretism is becoming the major part of Christianity in Africa. Consequently, many Christians and non-Christians are not sure of what to believe or what they should believe about the Bible and Christian faith. Regrettably, it is observed that most writers of Christian apologetics do not write from the African perspective. The socio-cultural, socio-economic and socio-political realities of Africans are left out in their writings. This, inter alia, makes Christian apologetics as a Christian discipline to be unappealing to Africans. Therefore, the purpose of this book is: (1) to make solemn appeal to apologists to embark on the apologetics which addresses the African experience, (2) (since Christian apologetics is not a popular Christian discipline among Africans yet,) to sensitize and convince scholars, seminary students, church leaders and Christians in African of the need to defend the Christian faith in Africa, through the presentation of the gospel in all its fullness and depth.
