"Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding." Proverbs 4:7. The author invites you into the wisdom of the legacy of Africa that provided the principles that key biblical scriptures were developed from. The principle used to create the concept of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil is revealed. He exposes you to a conversation held in a vision of an African ancestor with God. In the vision God entrusted him with a tool of great wisdom that if used could guide humanity to a more peaceful coexistence than history has recorded. It is a tool that still has the power to avert bloodshed in our present day and certainly in our future. The legacy of Africa is also an incredible source of human inspiration and should be a source of great pride. Drawing from the will and spiritual strength of African ancestors, generations of their offspring survived slavery, apartheid and colonialism. The author delves deep into places in history where man has shown grave inhumanity to man. The evils man has exhibited could have been prevented if God's tool of wisdom given to an African in a vision had been employed. You will understand the value of this tool as you realize how appropriate its use would be in our world of politics and globalization. What humanity is lacking God had already provided.

"Totally enlightening!" "He's quite impressive." "Excellent perspective!" Mr. Preston attended my club's review of his book, and these are few comments submitted in the post review. Africa: The Legacy of Civilization was a challenging selection. The author introduced the principles of the Kybalion, which were new ideas for some of us. The book was compelling. I have since broadened my knowledge of Africa's contribution. The book was quite unexpected and revealing.
