Collection Of African Religion

Collection Of African Religion


Collection Of African Religion Part 1(9 Books)

This is an excellent exploration and analysis of African Religious thoughts and practices. The author's expositions are detailed, especially when speaking about the usually more obscure African societies. What's extremely interesting is the logic behind the practices such as (before entering 'rites of passage') leaving a child in the wilderness temporarily in order to teach the child that alone they are nothing, they literally do not exist.

Sketching the religious landscape of African American communities today, Pinn makes explicit the tension in traditional conversations about black religion that privilege either Christianity in particular or organizations (with doctrines and creeds) in general. Discussing the misunderstandings and historical inaccuracies of such views, Pinn offers an alternate theory of black religion that begins with a basic push for embodied meaning as its core impulse.

Titles in this collection they are :-

• AT THE BACK OF THE BLACK MAN S MIND
• Fetichism In West Africa
• Folk Stories From Southern Nigeria
• Hausa Folk Lore
• Jamaica Anansi Stories
• Kaffir Xhosa Folk Lore
• Myths And Legends Of The Bantu

An objective collection of works. It's key to mention that the majority of the works presented here come from the perspective of a western civilization ethos and as such should be considered neither valid critiques nor unique observations that would detail--without intimacy--the essence of the Afrikkan Spiritual/Religious experience.
