Overview

Unconsciously, he established the evidence of system he’s a truce breaker.

Although his father, Rev. Joseph Obiajulu had avowed him to God to be a priest,
a vow that saved him from death,
he absconded from home in pursuit of his dream to become a medical doctor.
Then he breached his promise to Ifeanyi, his elder brother,
not to join the university’s secret fraternity,
a promise that was sealed with the gift of a golden chain and a crucifix pendant.

But when he violated his consecration vow as
Hangman of the dreaded Inverted Cross Fraternity,
he was forced to give up the hammer, the medallion and the armband.
To escape the penalty of his transgression,
he adopted a new name…Jehoshaphat.

He became an apostate and swore to destroy the fraternity he founded…
…one promise he didn’t fail.

Reviewed by Ray Simmons for Readers' Favorite Disciples of the Inverted Cross by Stanley Ohanugo is a powerful story. It is the inspirational story of Ikenna Obiajulu, a young man haunted by the death of a younger sister during his early childhood. He was so young at the time of her death that he can barely remember her, but he keeps her picture in his Bible and is determined to become a doctor one day, despite his father's insistence that he become a member of the clergy.   What made the story important to me and also made me very glad I read it was the realistic glimpse into life in Nigeria. As I write this review, the world is awaiting the fate of 300 kidnapped schoolgirls in Nigeria. Disciples of the Inverted Cross gave me insight into life in a country where such a thing is possible. One of the most revealing incidents in the book is when the protagonist's young mentally ill cousin, Florence, dies of pneumonia in a hospital and is whisked away and buried in a spot in the suburbs by the kids who took care of her. This is life in the Third World and Stanley Ohanugo describes it in a prosaic, no-nonsense manner that shocks you as you realize all the things that didn't happen when this young girl died. The writing in Disciples of the Inverted Cross is factual and straightforward, but the characters and occurrences have a definite Third World flair. The scenes are powerful and moving without contrived drama.
