Abstract
Africa has been mightily blessed. Her natural resources make her the wealthiest of the world's seven continents. She possesses a rich heritage as the womb of the Judeo-Christian faith. Her people comprise her greatest wealth. Being imago Dei, they possess vast internal capital. On top of all this; there is the incredible potential that exists through the dramatic recent growth of the church. Yet despite these countless blessings and riches, Africa remains undeniably the most poverty-stricken and broken continent on the planet. When one examines global poverty indices and measurements, it becomes apparent that things are improving everywhere in the world with one glaring exception – Africa. How can it be that Africa continues to languish? This 60-page booklet examines the situation in Africa today from the vantage point of a distinctively biblical worldview and argues that true hope for transformation lies with the rapidly expanding African Church practicing a wholistic ministry and taking biblical truth boldly into every sphere of society.
