The Kasena and the Christian Gospel The author describes the background of Kasena society and family life.

The Kasena and the Christian Gospel. by Allison M. Howell. The author describes the background of Kasena society and family life, traditional beliefs and thought, mechanisms for resolving crises and personal problems, and natural environment.

The Kasena in northern Ghana first encountered Christian missionaries in 1906 and so began to hear about We chona (God's way). The study initially identifies the historic, environmental and socio-political context of the Kasena. For 50 years, the Roman Catholic Church functioned alone among the Kasena. Over this time most Kasena perceived We chona to be the "white man's religion" and largely irrelevant. It explores Kasena organisation of social and family life, and the way they seek to live in their environment, to resolve some of their problems and clarify issues, with a view to gaining insight into their ideas and beliefs about life and the transcendental realm.

In the ongoing story of African religion, the Kasena encounter with Christianity in Northern Ghana gives vivid insight into a people and their past. Allison Howell initially identifies the historical, environmental and socio-political context of the Kasena. A description of Kasena family life and their methods of resolving crises and personal problems sheds light on their beliefs about the spiritual realm. There follows a study of Kasena stories of conversion, their reasons for conversion and the growth of new churches. An analysis of personal interviews, songs, prayers and sermons, enables the author to assess the emerging Kasena Christian theology. From the Kasena religious itinerary, a pattern is distinguished which has implications for communicating the Gospel, for understanding people's reasons for conversion, and for the development of theology in other parts of the world.
