FOREWORD
 By Dr. Benjamin F. Reaves (Former President of Oakwood College)
Sednak Yankson has taken on a vitally important issue in addressing as heterms it, “Africa’s roots in God.” His contribution to this discussion comes ata time when, William G. Johnson,
 Adventist Review
editor in the November 9,2006 issue writes: “We are living through a transforming moment in thehistory of Christianity, as the peoples of Africa embrace Jesus inunprecedented numbers.”At this propitious time, Yankson states that his hope is, “to create a new lovefor Africa and a dialogue between current residents of Africa and their  brothers and sisters around the world.”His personal life credentials are impressive and he writes from the rare perspective of participant, observer, and scholar, one who stands at the critical junction of culture and scholarship, employing theological, philosophical, andhistorical retrieval.With perceptive insight and a discernable passion, Yankson addresses andreminds us of some challenging questions and stereotypes that still havecurrency in many circles. By carefully examining historical and biblicalmaterials, he has uncovered some facts, corrected some misconceptions and broadened perspectives on Africa’s linkage and contribution to the preservation of Christianity. True to his intent, the main objective of this book is to show that the knowledge of the true God of creation has been identifiedand can be traced in the African culture.In sum, the result is a document to be reckoned with in any consideration of African issues. I am confident the reader will find that Sednak Yankson’s book provides an important contribution to this area.
