Christian Worldview and the Fear of Islamic Domination in Nigeria

Samuel Ango, James Reynolds

Abstract


While Christian worldview discussions in the West are mostly undertaken in response to the dominance of sacred-secular dualism, African Christian scholars mostly discuss how African traditional worldview might influence Christian theology, without emphasizing Christian worldview. The few scholarly statements about Christian worldview per se on African perspective are mostly made by Western scholars writing in Africa. They suggest a gap in Christian worldview discussion by indigenous African scholars in response to challenges to faith. The authors of this piece propose that Christian worldview discussion in the context of plural relations, especially the fear of Islamic domination, may prove helpful to influence Christian thinking in Nigeria towards more biblical and fruitful attitudes.
