Overview

A biblical and theological study of great relevance, the meeting between the Divine and humans is experienced in greatest measure in the liturgy of the Eucharist mediated through the role of the priest. Igbo religion and culture offer surprising aspects that invite ecclesiastical consideration for a profound worship. Starting with the priesthood and sacrificial ritual in the Igbo tribe which is the seed-bed of Christianity in Nigeria, and suggesting areas in the Igbo culture and tradition that may be inculturated into the church's worship, this book contributes to giving Christ and the Church a true home in Igboland.
