Chapter Summary

This chapter raises a fundamental, practical problem. It is one thing to propose a line of thought, but it is quite another thing to promote a new thought. One of the basic problems of theology in the context of Africa is that we never really recognize the ground that is already captured. A possible way to remove the problem of the neglect of the captured ground is by isolating what has already been done and promoting it. The chapter discusses the five steps of the problem finding/problem solving model: (i) recognizing or selecting the problem, (ii) clarifying and representing the elements of the problem as an extended effort to solving it, (iii) proposing solutions to the problem or setting constraints on existing solutions to the problem, (iv) testing and evaluating or restructuring the solutions, and (v) revising, restating, and re-evaluation or simply verification and elaboration.

Keywords: Africa; problem finding model; problem solving model; theology
