The book discusses the question; did Africans know God before the arrival of the missionaries; or were the missionaries the first to introduce the concept of a supreme being to Africans? It presents evidence that Africans had a concept of a supreme being as demonstrated in many of their rituals, activities, festivals and ceremonies, not to mention beliefs about creation, life and death. It further discusses the role and impact of the early missionaries in Africa, providing critical insights into the age-old practice of African Traditional Religion and its inevitable conflict with Christianity. It enables the reader to understand African spirituality within the context of its mythology, practices, beliefs and rituals.
