Editorial Reviews

Missiology: An International Review
A penetrating analysis of the life and writings of a Sierre Leonean Christian who contributed to Pan-Africanism on two continents...

Davis who, after converting to Christianity in his parents' adopted country of Sierra Leone, took the name Orishatukeh Faduma, symbolic of his lifelong effort to proselytize for pan-Africanism...Faduma's writings demonstrate that theological modernism made important inroads among African-American religious thinkers, who have been too often sterotyped as immune to the "New Theology"...essential for African-American religious and intellectual history.
