This text seeks to demonstrate a continuity between Christianity and the Akan/African religio-cultural traditions, by working with the Christian biblical metaphor of the Kingdom of God. It proceeds in five steps: the problem of cultural alienation in contemporary Africa; the way the Kingdom of God functions as a symbol in the preaching of Jesus; an examination of the Akan belief in the Kingship of Onyame, 'God'; the possibility of proclaiming the Christian symbol of the Kingdom to the Akan; and drawing various theological conclusions to demonstrate the affirmation of substantive continuity between Christian and African traditions to pave the way for a Christian theology reflecting an African ethos.
