Introduction
Use of Christian motifs in African fiction is so prevalent that it deserves a special attention. Classic writers like Ngugi wa Thiongo to Chinua Achebe invoked Christianity in one way or another and the contemporary writers and playwrights have even thematized Christianity in their works. Though this use has been recognized by some scholars, most readings have deployed reference to bible within the historical contexts that produced these fictions. Since the contexts that produced these fictions are far detached from the contemporary ones that now read these texts, there is a need to look at the twenty-first century evocations and appropriations of the Biblical allusions in African fictions. It is the aim of this special issue to provide an examination of the wide use of biblical motifs in both classic and contemporary African Literature. The potential contributors should examine a dialogue between literature and the Bible within the context of current socio-political and economic dispensations.
Aims and Scope:
  1. Critique of Christianity in African Fiction
  2. Christianity as a commentary on socio-economic and political orientations
  3. Appropriations of Christianity in African Fiction
  4. Resistance, Exploitations and Christianity in African Fiction
  5. Impact of Christianity of African Fiction
  6. Changing Implications of Christianity in reading African Fiction
