In Context: Colonialism & Religion in Nigeria

“When the early missionaries and the Colonial masters visited the land,” says Rev. Abare Kallah, of the Christian Association of Nigeria, “there were a lot of things they told us not to do, but they didn’t tell us why not to do those things.”  In this the first in our series “In Context” Rev. Kallah explains how an alliance between missionaries and the British Colonizers set up a systemic divide between Christians and Muslims in Nigeria.


“In Context” is a series that explores the situational realities of an issue or event as an important step in developing a responsive contextual theology.
