Description

This is the first field study examining how Christianity has transformed the grieving process among widows in Africa. This book presents Christologies obtained from rural Abanyole widows. It introduces a new field for theological reflection dealing with grief, and it maps out different experiences for women in Africa. In this case, the widows tell their stories through their experiences in localities and social contexts guided by their personal histories. Consequently, this book takes the direction of focusing on kinship, gender, and the power of naming. To do this, the author takes up a multi-disciplinary approach to pay special attention to their lives by documenting how they account for their situation. It frames them alongside plausible typologies with other feminist Christologies.
