Description

This book is a wonderful journey through the mind of a keen observer of politics, society and culture of the mid-nineteenth century Britain and applying the understanding when writing of Africa.

It speaks of the great past of Africa and the role various religions have played in the development of the African civilization. It compares how much either of Islam or Christianity has contributed to the making of the African past and the present.

The books ends with a note of wonder that whether religion or science shall lead to the truer realization of the value and meaning of human life.
