About the Book

This book offers you tremendous insight into the theology of the Global South through the voice of an African woman named Monica Baker. From views of African animism and folk magic to deep spirituality of African Christianity, Monica takes you on a theological journey unlike any typically experienced in Western theology. This cultural experience reveals the similarities of human experience, while at the same time providing unique theological insights from the African cultural context.

About the Author

We would expect someone born into a large and famous family to enjoy blissfulness of life, but Monica’s childhood experiences stands in contrary to a blissful life. She was born into a royal home; however, her early life was filled with trauma and pain. She was the child of an alcoholic mother whose mama roamed naked in the town center, eating garbage and decaying animals sacrificed to idols.

God transformed Monica’s story, and helped her to see the beauty in the kaleidoscope of her broken life, and now she shares her message of hope all around the world. Monica relates God’s healing power in a manner that is simple yet profound. She urges survivors to dump their emotional baggage and allow God’s glory to reveal the essence of their broken lives. Her simple theology is that if Jesus can heal her pain and bind her brokenness, He will do the same for you. Monica is an expert in her chosen profession; she is the founder of a fast-growing international Christian outreach program (profession and organization name withheld to promote anonymity).
