The Word Took Flesh by Hyacinth Kalu
In our age and time, many Igbo Christians are faced with crises of faith and identity as to whether they are Christians, faithful to the teachings of their religion, or Igbos, loyal to their native customs and cultures. Addressing these crises, this book identifies and proposes ways of incorporating the Christian message, through a systematic process of inculturation, into the life of the Igbo people so that they can be at home with the message of the gospel, and at the same time, at home with the Igbo cultures. It assists the Igbo people to live out their Christian life as a truly Igbo people, and not in the 'foreign garments' of missionary Christianity.
Broadly, this book presents the intrinsic relationships and indissoluble 'marriage' between religion and culture. It highlights the fact that, every religion has cultural influences, just as every culture has religious influences.
