Africa and the Testament of the Gods: Popular History of Kingdoms, Slavery and Religious in Africa
“This is the most unusual history of Africa…… it compares three religious systems: Christianity, Islam and indigenous Africa religions, in their influence on the history of the continent. Mavimbela seeks to demonstrate that all these religions are deeply rooted in the customs, practices and beliefs of the respective societies and that none are superior in their ability to explain the natural phenomena encountered by their adherents… this book is an extended expose of how a conquering power used either Christianity or Islam to establish subjugation over African people… The author hopes that by revisiting the painful detail of that history and its implications, African people might still locate the bearings that might lead them back to their full self-worth”
