  • "The Wiley-Blackwell Companion to African Religions presents multidisciplinary perspectives on the religious beliefs and practices of the peoples in Africa. The rich diversity of African religious traditions is revealed through contributions from renowned scholars from across a variety of fields. Initial essays focus on methodological approaches to religion from anthropological, philosophical, and historical perspectives.
