The Journal of African Christian Biography

The Journal of African Christian Biography (JACB) publishes research on biographies of African Christians. The primary focus is on the role of local agents in the spread of Christianity in Africa. The JACB is an open access publication committed to facilitating global conversations among scholars across cultures, nations, Christian traditions, and academic specializations, with particular emphasis on Africa. We invite contributions from individuals affiliated with religious and educational institutions in Africa and elsewhere.

• Original biographies and African Christian histories

• Obituaries and tributes about recently deceased figures
• Excerpts of recently published scholarship

• Resources for teaching with biography
