Ujamaa: Resources (Academic)
The Ujamaa Centre offers a range of resources. Many of these resources may be downloaded from our website and used by those who share our commitments.
The resources on this page are academic resources. We also offer a range of practical resources, where we reflect on the Contextual Bible methodology: see Ujamaa Resources (practical). These sets of resources belong together, for reflection on practice are part of a single process.
