  • Product Description
 

Okonko Society is one of the Traditional Societies in Igboland that functions as an authentic component of African Religion. While the social units of the family, the kindred, and the ethnic group, have protective values for individuals within them, Okonko operates as additional protection consolidated with religious and mystery rites. The mystery rites and secrecy associated with Okonko Society are unbelievable, and the Society has been surrounded with controversy since the advent of Christianity in Igboland. In order to create a platform of dialogue between African Religion and Christianity, a comparative analysis of Okonko and Christianity is undertaken within this context. The work examines the origin, nature, functions, and membership of Okonko Society in Igboland on the framework of Christian sacraments of Initiation. In all, Okonko Society and Christianity can coexist in Igboland for a balanced society.
