Summary: At present, Rev. Gudina Tumsa's life and legacy are well-known only in his native East Africa, in his seminary community in the United States, and, because of his denominational affiliation, in Lutheran Europe. As such, this work aims at introducing Gudina, who is known as 'the Bonhoeffer of Africa,' to the rest of the world, not just as a Lutheran theologian, but as a Christian Ethiopian theologian who labored for the Ethiopian Church as a whole and has much to teach Christians from all nations. For all these reasons, this work will be comprised of Gudina's short biography, his theological emphases and his contributions to the Ethiopian Church. And finally, lessons for our contemporary global context will be proposed based on his life and legacy.
