Emmauel Katongole is a Catholic priest from Uganda, born in 1960, who lived through the reign of Idi Amin and has seen the postcolonial struggles of his home country and its sub-Saharan neighbors -- Rwanda, the Congo, Zimbabwe, Liberia, and others -- up close and personal.

Looking at this region, ravaged by war, corruption, terror, genocide, and disease, Katongole wonders at length what difference Christianity makes -- or could make -- in numerous African nation-states. The Sacrifice of Africa argues that in the face of Africa's social, political, and economic turmoil, a new future truly is possible, and displays how such a new future, inspired by Christian faith, looks.
