This book is a theological research done as a comparative study of African Traditional Religion in comparison to Christianity. Since Africans in most part, are seen around the world as pagans without any concept of the true God until white missionaries got to the continent, this study is an effort to change that mentality. This book is a result of my research as a theology student to find out what both the Traditional and Christian religions have in common. Those who will approach this book with an open mind will realise that, Africans when it comes to their spirituality, are more spiritual and prayerful than the average Christian in the West. Readers will find to their surprise that there are some similarities or commonalities within these religions, which most Christians are not even aware of. Since the people who brought the notion of this ONE God Christians hold on to so dearly, - the Hebrews, were originally Africans, readers should not be surprised when they come across the facts that, most of the traditional religious sacrificial traditions are in the Christian book of life we call the Bible. Yes, this may come as a surprise to most Christians; but the truth is, we cannot deny their similarities and probably their origin in the Christian tradition because of their African background. Hopefully this book will open the door for dialogue between Christians and non-Christians about God's presence in every culture....
