This paper explains an important theological method. It discusses the ways in which theology could make the tenets of faith credible to the modern-day African through a grounded interpretation of human experience in the light of revelation. In the view of the author, doing theology in context holds enormous promise for Africans who are tossed about by paradoxes of life and who need to be helped to reclaim their vision and rearticulate their mission. The paper underscores the importance of human experience as a raw material for the theological enterprise. After a working definition of human experience and theology, the paper evaluates the dialectic of scripture, human experience and theology in order to conclude that the raw materials of talk about God is a peoples worldview and experience in their immediate environment.
