With various objectives in mind, this book examines the cumulative scholarship of Professor Ogbu Kalu (1942-2009). The first objective is to supply the contexts to understand him at various levels. Including the scholarship to which he responded, the cultural background which his work was grounded, and above all, the debates that raged during his era. The second objective is to analyze the overall contents of his body of work that constitute his contributions to knowledge. The third is to go beyond his work and, in the process, make far-reaching reflections on Christianity as a religion and as a field of scholarship. The fourth and final objective is to create an agenda for the Center that is named after him.
