AGAPIT J. MROSO, THE CHURCH IN AFRICA AND THE NEW EVANGELISATION. A Theologico-Pastoral Study of the Orientations of John Paul II
The aim of evangelisation is to enthrone Christ as the centre of humanity by presenting Him as eternally young and this has characterised the whole of Christian history. The changing times call for a more timely proclamation of this saving message.
This work intends to stress new structures and methods as well as a change of mentality among those who have accepted Christ to be God Incarnate, a prerequisite for the success of this mission. There is a need to indicate timely pastoral orientations as we embark upon the Third Millennium of evangelisation in general and the second century evangelisation in Africa in particular. The Magisterium, in the person of Pope John Paul II, designates this a priority and "a life and death campaign".
