Missionaries came along with colonial powers with the sincere, but culturally misguided, attempt to save primitives, ignorant of the true religion of Africans. An African was regarded as a child who needed to be nurtured and guided (Ukpong 2001). However, the dissertation will show that there is reciprocal enhancement between koinonia and AJNcan philosophy which can establish missional communities. Therefore, the main question that this dissertation raises, is the following: Can koinonia, as part of the missio Dei, inculturate African philosophy to build reconciled societies?
