Civil war, famine, genocide, AIDS—Africa has endured some of the most horrific human tragedies of recent times. The rapid rise of a Christian social ethics movement, however, suggests a powerful coping mechanism for African peoples. One of the leaders of this movement is Emmanuel Katongole, a Catholic priest in Uganda. In A Future for Africa, Katongole wrestles with Africa's concrete and debilitating problems, including poverty, corruption, and tribalism, and then offers humanitarian and faith-filled solutions. The work fills a vacancy in the current debate about lasting solutions to Africa's problems and should be meaningful reading for scholars of ethics and religion alike.
