"Shaped by the transatlantic slave trade, Christianity, Islam, colonialism, and, now, globalization, Yoruba religious culture remains dynamic and inspirational. This volume goes beyond the usual tendency in Diaspora studies to focus on cultural retention. It is a significant contribution." - Mojubaolu Olufunke Okome, Brooklyn College, City University of New York"
