BookNotes for Africa is an occasional review journal (usually twice-yearly) offering one-paragraph evaluative reviews of recent Africa-related publications relevant for informed Christian reflection in and about Africa.

BookNotes for Africa has now published reviews of more than a thousand such titles relating to Africa. Titles are selected especially for potential interest to theological educators, libraries, and researchers in Africa and overseas.

Reviews are provided by a team of contributors drawn from throughout Africa and overseas. Coverage is limited to titles published from 1986 onward, with emphases on those released more recently.

BookNotes for Africa is sponsored by the following distinguished theological schools in Africa:

  • Evangelical Theological College, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
  • George Whitefield College, Cape Town, South Africa
  • Jos ECWA Theological Seminary, Jos, Nigeria

A simple mode of production is maintained to enable modest subscription rates for the intended readership.

Subscription rates are based on a two-year cycle (4 issues), and include airmail posting.

The rates for two years (4 issues) are:

  •  US$10 to addresses within Africa
  •  US$15 to addresses outside of Africa.

Back issues are also available, at US$4 per copy within Africa, and US$5 per copy overseas.
