“This book about Owura Amu is at once history and theology, a fitting tribute to a man who started ‘doing’ African theology before the academic theologians of Africa came on the scene to ‘invent’ and name it…All who have told or heard ‘the legend’ of preaching in Ntama must read the full debate.” — Mercy Amba Oduyoye, Director, Institute of Women in Religion and Culture, Trinity Theological Seminary, Legon
“Ephraim Amu — teacher, preacher, patriot and musician — was a significant representative figure in the movement from colonial to independent Africa. Dr Laryea provides a fascinating portrait of a remarkable man, illuminating the cultural, social and religious issues of Amu’s times and the dynamics of his relations with others. Amu’s Christian faith and practice are explored in a most helpful way; one begins to realise why the portrait of this church teacher came to appear on Ghanaian currency notes.” — Andrew F Walls, Akrofi-Christaller Institute, Akropong; University of Edinburgh and Liverpool Hope University
“I will like to congratulate Dr Laryea for undertaking this detailed study of Amu, first for the painstaking manner in which he conducted his research and the comprehensive nature of the oral and documentary sources of information on the varied aspects of the life of Amu he brings together, which makes this study a veritable compendium of data for both scholars and writers interested in the humanistic story of this great personality.” — J.H. Kwabena Nketia, Emeritus Professor
“This book makes an excellent contribution to studies on Ephraim Amu’s philosophy of culture and his reflections on the relation between African culture and Christian theology, a relation that has been a resilient theological problem. This book is rewarding reading.” — Kwame Gyekye (FGA), Emeritus Professor of Classics and Philosophy₵160.00Quick View
This is a brief but rich study of the life of one of the significant early indigenous ministers of the gospel in the Gold Coast. Opoku was born a year before the arrival in Akropong-Akuapem of the West Indians who were recruited by the Basel Mission, a development that marked the beginning of successful Basel Mission work in the Gold Coast after the persistent failure since 1828.
This work, though constrained by legitimate factors of time and length, is nevertheless based on primary sourced. It offers a portrait of Theophilus Opoku that is real and fascinating, and underscores the fact that the goals that the Basel Mission sent its missionaries to the Gold Coast to pursue could be achieved by local or ‘native’ people already immersed in their own culture. Opoku’s life and ministry as presented here confirm that a theologian is not necessarily one who produces theological treatises but one who in daily life and work makes a definite impact that is only feasible through a real engagement of his Christian faith with the existential issues of his cultural context.
Opoku engaged with people of other faiths, whether the primal religion or Islam, and there are lessons to be learnt from this study in how he approached those engagements. — Rev. Dr. Benhardt Y. Quarshie, Rector, Akrofi-Christaller Institute of Theology, Mission and Culture, Akropong-Akuapem, Ghana₵25.00Quick View
