Possibly one of the best books written of its kind. The author links various Afrikan pagan spiritual faiths and gods to each other (JuJu, Voodoo, Odemare, Sun Worship, Afrikan holy trinity) to all the major western religions, as well as to music such as jazz and gospel. It is comprehensive in scope and very historical in perspective, examining each major religions relationships by chapter. One thing for sure, is that there is not one single religion on earth conceived, invented, maintained, helped along without Afrikans as major players, real and mythological to help spread the gospel and make modern religion what it is today. The author gives excellent bibliographical references for those who are critics to see for themselves.
