About the Journal
The Hekima Review (HR) is the journal of the Hekima University College (HUC). Hekima Review is an international, open-access, peer-reviewed journal. It provides a platform for a scholarship based on biblical fidelity for academics and practitioners in all areas of Jesuit theological studies. The aim of the journal is to encourage original and deeper studies and provide appropriate and relevant application of the Scriptures to society for the ultimate purpose of redemption. The journal is published twice every year.
In his literary classic What Is Not Sacred, Laurenti Magesa alludes
to a triadic empirical-transcendental-sacramental constituent of
African spirituality. This manière d’être resonates with the biblical
claim (Gen 1:31) that everything created is good. However, human
relation with creation does not always guarantee sacramental and
transcendental experiences. How then should creation be appropriately
admired, understood, and embraced without tragic consequences? An
aesthetic assessment of what is (not) sacred deserves due investigation.
