Ancestral Voices: Spirit is Eternal
A classic in its genre, it has been hailed as a seminal piece of work surpassing the only other work in this field, John Mbiti's 'African Religions & Philosophy' (1969), as its coverage is not just of traditional continental Africa but also includes ancient Africa and its legacy in the Diaspora. Described by the esteemed historian Robin Walker as a book that 'deserves a place in every home', it is a complimentary counterpart to the film and is the published findings of over 7 years of literature research as well as content from video interviews carried out in action research during filming. Topics covered include African conception of the Creator/'God', Nature and the Natural Forces, nature of humanity, Ancestral veneration and communication and various forms of African rituals and prayers. In addition, it is an invaluable companion for those seeking to live an African Spiritual-Centred life as it contains a whole chapter dedicated to Ritual with practices for daily living, suited for the initiated and non-initiated alike.
