I have just received news that African theologian Kwame Bediako passed away this week. Kwame was a key player in the African theology movement.
Chris Wright, International Director of the Langham Partnership International (John Stott Ministries in the US), has written a tribute to Bediako that is posted on the Zondervan blog. The tribute also features a recent video clip of Bediako preaching at Zondervan's chapel in May 2008 on the topic of "Understanding the unity of the Church." There is also a link to the Africa Bible Commentary, for which Bediako was one of the three theological advisers.
