New Release: Understanding Ogbu Kalu

Understanding Ogbu Kalu: Christianity and Culture in Africa

This is one of the few books ever written on an African scholar, showing the possibility and benefits of such a rare approach and unprecedented generosity. Rich with details, learned in its findings, and revolutionary in its recommendations, Toyin Falola continues to extend the frontiers of scholarship in African studies with finesse.
