Synopsis

This book, based on extensive fieldwork, provides a broader understanding of a unique religion. The heart of the study is a detailed examination of Lima religious beliefs and their intersection with Christianity.Against the background of rising interest in African religions, this study fills a gap in the literature about the ethno-theological landscape of Sierra Leone, and provides a detailed study on the intersection of African Traditional Religion and Christianity. The book could be used as a textbook for courses in African Traditional Religion, and is already being prescribed, for instance, for the Interreligious Dialogue class at Colgate Divinity School in the USA, and the author's own World Religions class at McMaster Divinity College in Canada.
