About the Author


Afua Kuma (1906-87) was a rural Ghanaian woman whose amazing prayers and praises confirm her as a prophetess, healer, and oral theologian. Jon P. Kirby, SVD, is a missionary-anthropologist who knew Afua Kuma and put her praises into a poetic English form that captures the beauty of the original Twi. He worked in Ghana for thirty-six years and later taught at Washington Theological Union. Joseph Kwakye is a retired Ghanaian schoolteacher who lived in Afua Kuma's village in the 1970s and consulted with her when doing the transcription and translation for Ghanaian readers of the first collection of her praises. Now, he has transcribed this second collection from newly discovered recordings.
