Description

Original Publications 1995. isbn 0942272412. Near Fine.

This classic text is referenced in the bibliography of just about every book written on the Yoruba religion. Late Professor Idowu, a Yoruba scholar and a minister of the Methodist Church in Nigeria, sees the history and ritual of the Yoruba from a theological, rather than an anthropological, viewpoint. one of the author's chief aims is to interpret the Yoruba concept of the supreme God and to explore the relationship between Olodumare and sub-ordinate deities.

Apart from the special merit of having been written by one who knows the ground thoroughly, the book provides a fresh approach to the study of religionin West Africa. This second edition contains a considerable amountof new material -- songs and verses quoted with English translations -- which has never before been recorded.

There are few books on this subject available and none written from a Yoruba viewpoint. Professor Idowu's work should provoke a good deal of controversy and valuable discussion.
