Abstract:Contextualization has been a major theological pursuit in Africa in general and Nigeria in particular. This concern is born out of the necessity to integrate Christianity into African life and culture. Although the concept has taken root in theology, liturgy, and missiology in Nigeria, its heuristic significance for preaching remains unexplored. This is largely due to over-dependence on the western missionary-form of preaching. Beginning with the premise that preaching is meaningful and more effective when it is rooted in the context of the audience, this project explores how contextualization could enhance the practice of preaching among the Yoruba of Nigeria. The project combines library research and analysis of contextual sermon samples to underscore the underlying thesis. Literature used includes theological and homiletical writings of both foreign and African scholars. The four sermon samples draw on the writer's twelve years of preaching experience in different parts of Yorubaland. Chapter 1 introduces and delineates the nature and scope of the project. The second chapter examines the traditional context of Yoruba people by tracing the origin and describing the traditional worldview of the people. While acknowledging the vast diversity of Yorubaland, the chapter presumes some commonality among Yoruba people. In Chapter 3, the variety of preaching practices in Yorubaland are presented and analyzed. Specific attention is paid to preaching practices in the pre-Christian era, European missionary period, mainline churches, Indigenous churches, and Pentecostal/Charismatic churches. Chapter 4 discusses the theoretical underpinning of the project by examining the theological movement and homiletical implications of contextualization. Chapter 5 concretizes the thesis of the project by analyzing four sermon samples that are designed to embody the Yoruba context, and the concluding chapter summaries the key points of the project.
