A new sort of ‘’dispute of rite’’ , as that which took place in china during the 18st century in the phase of evangelization , has just spread in the 21st century at the Luebo diocese (democratic republic of Congo). This present book appears to be an interdisciplinary justification of Congolese –kasaian rite of the mass practiced in one of the parishes of this diocese, the tshikapakele budikadidi parish is the one found at the heat of the said dispute. This concerns, without neglecting the word, autochthon language, men and women of the base believe for the six authors of this collective book, to analyze from different scientific promontories but also complementary ,this practice of enculturation of Christian life in a portion of African catholic church. They also demonstrate that it is well conformed to the nature of the act of faith, which is an exchange between god who speaks and man who respond from his aspect space and his time, equally to the best directives of the universal magisterial of the contemporary church and to the requirements for the historical evolution of African societies just as those else where.
