This work predominantly seeks to establish and demonstrate the fundamental causes of a continued vitality and resilience of ATRs in the life of a contemporary African who resides in the Zimbabwean cities. This endeavor seeks to find out why ATRs continue to exist in the face of onslaught from Christianity and other religions. Surprisingly ATRs are resilient and they persevere even if history has it that they have been undermined and demonized in their encounter with both the missionary religions and the western culture. Indeed ATRs have been constantly attacked and ?knocked down? but they are not necessarily being ?knocked out? as evidenced by the everyday life of most African people. All things considered, this endeavor seeks to explore that which sustains the beliefs and practices of these ATRs. The study is also going to be helpful to biblical scholars, theologians and traditionalists interested in ATRs? encounter with other religions and their resilient survival.
