Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is much better than I had presumed it would be. So much info on Baba Ogun on different aspects of this great Orisha related to his role in warfare, technology, Yoruba culture, etc..with a balance of perspectives from both the continent/Yorubaland and the new world. I can't imagine anyone being disappointed with the amount of information contained in this great book from both scholarly and religious sources.

This is a really wonderful collection of scholarly articles about Ogun. I took a workshop 20+ years ago that identified Ogun as my guardian Orisha, and have been curious about him over the years. There is so much conflicting information online that it is difficult for even a professional academic researcher like me to cut through it all. This book did the trick. It was absolutely fantastic in its breadth and clarity. The collection of scholars assembled for it was ideal. I was very grateful someone took the time to create this collection of scholarly essays.

A great book about Ogun's cult. If you want to know Ogun in Africa and in Americas, you need this book.

Format: Paperback
This is just another eurocentric reduction of Afrikan spiritual science into "paganism." Don't waste your money. Unfortunately, most written material assessible in the U.S.A about Afrikan spirituality is. If you want to know about the real science, read Dr. Karenga's "Odu Ifa" yoruba-english translation of the most ancient sacred scriptures on Earth.
