Overview

Appraisal of the Growth of the Christian Faith in Igboland: A Psychological and Pastoral Perspective by Bartholomew Okere

The Igbo people in Nigeria continue to make some movements toward Christianity, but many fail to practice the faith properly. Tribal traditions and old beliefs continue to be mixed with Christian concepts. By exploring the problem from a psychological and pastoral perspective, author Bartholomew N. Okere seeks to discover ways to advance the Christian faith. Okere, an ordained Catholic priest, asks serious questions about the nature of religion: Can someone believe in a supernatural being without any proof that the being is affecting his life? Can the notion of God be therapeutic in any sense, especially when people face different life-threatening situations? Can a hungry person sing and praise God on empty stomach? Can the name of God be employed for political gains? The Christian religion in Nigeria has dramatically affected the people of Igboland. Discover why this is so important, and learn more about faith, religion, and life in Nigeria in An Appraisal of the Growth of the Christian Faith in Igboland.
