African Hospitality From a Missiological Perspective: Aiding Church and Societal Growth, explores the contribution of African Hospitality towards church growth in particular, and societal growth in general. It attributes the fast spread of Christianity in Africa to the generosity that was displayed by Africans to the early European missionaries in the 19th and 20th centuries. That is, they offered land and other resources, even though their hospitality was at times, misused and/or abused. It also attributes the hopelessness in Africa, as evidenced by massive poverty, bad governance, starvation on a mass scale, for the failure to uphold hospitality strictly, as in line with the ideal African heritage and Biblical traditions on hospitality. It challenges the church to take a more active role in religio-social issues in order to help Africa to overcome her miseries. At the end of the book the author is deeply convinced that there is great hope for the African church and society in general.
