The year 2017 will mark the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Viewed largely as European phenomena, the sixteenth century events and the historical and theological novelty that they set in motion might easily pass uncelebrated in Africa. Yet, that omission would amount to a missed opportunity, for the third wave of missionary evangelization in Africa, though starting in late 18th century, cannot be understood without a proper appreciation of the impact of the Reformation on global Christianity and on human encounters in general.
