In this article, I argue for the recovery of a form of materio-spirituality-centred thought and wisdom for reconstructing an African theo-pedagogy for theological education for the decolonization of the mind. The aim of this work is to suggest how one can reclaim and reconstitute the core materio-spirituality features that are innovating and can provide the backbone for African theological education for the decolonization of the mind, without romanticizing, over-mythologizing or camouflaging harmful aspects of African life. This is important in enabling change without abandoning an entire religio-cultural anchor and without losing sight of the impact of modernity.
