|Title:||The Overlooked Proselytism: A Christian & Islamic Africa with 21st-century Implications|
|Abstract:||Within contemporary African society lies a profound change in demographics. That being the rise of a monotheist monoculture of Christianity and Islam. African adherents are faced with a challenge of religious extremism, in the fearful rhetoric of a civilizational clashing. But are there other sources influencing this dynamic of 'us vs. them?' Monotheism encompasses a wide variety of interpretations within the Abrahamic tradition of spreading the faith to non-believers. In other words, there is a multifaceted flow of influencers pouring into the seemingly straight-edged versions of the two religions the media and fanatics blow out. From this thesis, a hopefully more comprehensive understanding of what outcomes of violence may erupt or can be mitigated due to a phenomenal growth in population in general throughout the continent. In doing so, a better grip on the stakes involved with religious conversions, relations, and external drivers on Christian and Muslim African communities can better educate oneself from unfound anxiety of future relationships.|
