Product Description

Teaching the Children of Tewahedo: Africa and the Ethio-Judeo-Christian Legacy is conceptualized as an orientation, particularly, for scholars, teachers, evangelists of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church (EOTC) and acadamicians, navigating institutions dominated by Western perspectives and worldviews in Ethiopia and abroad. This book aims to provide an alternative perspective in this contemporary age of post-modernism. It examines ancient Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo theological traditions that are debated at advanced levels of religious contemplation. This text is also, in part, an introduction to the history of the African Church prior to the Colonial era.

This book combines a historical perspective that aims at assisting in comprehending the relation of the African Church to Western history and sociological realities of race and ethnicity vis a vis Africa and Africa-descended peoples. Moreover, it may serve as a guide for scholars and evangelists on the significance of this African Church for the African descended, as well as for systematic theology.

However, all who are interested in the history and practice of EOTC will find valuable information in this work. Moreover, it intends to be welcoming of all regardless of faith tradition, nationality or ethnic descent, as it presents the concept of the Ethiopic Adam as the ancestor of all humanity.

Further, the book demonstrates how racist ideology has globally skewed the history of Judaism and Christianity. This work presents an argument for Christian universality based on doctrine, as a broader understanding of Judaism and Christianity (i.e. Ethio-Judeo-Christian history.
