Abstract:This collective volume on the role of religion in African society, African religious expressions in the diaspora, and the role of African women in the academy was published in honour of Jacob Kehinde Olupona, who contributed significantly to the Africanization of the study of religion and the increasing attention paid to African traditions in the study of religion. The essays are grouped into two parts: I. Religion and society, religion in society; II. Diaspora, youth, and gender dynamics. Chapters in Part I: Approaches to peacemaking in Africa: 'obuntu' perspectives from western Kenya (Lucas Nandih Shamala); Religious pluralism and secularization in the Nigerian religious sphere (Danoye Oguntola Laguda); Faith, spiritualism, and materialism: understanding the interfaces of religion and the economy in Nigeria (Olutayo Charles Adesina); Toward a civil religion in Nigeria (Musa Barnabas Gaiya); The implications of ancestral veneration manifesting in national symbols for national integration and moral transformation in Nigeria (Jacob Kehinde Ayantayo); The concept of expiatory sacrifice in the early Church and in African indigenous religious traditions (Samson Adetunji Fatokun); Part II: Researching African immigrant religions: boundaries, belonging, and access (Abel Ugba); 'Aini obinrin ko see dake lasan, bi a dake lasan, enu nii yo ni': women's leadership roles in Aladura Churches in Nigeria and the USA (Mojubaolu Olufunke Okome and Elisha P. Renne); The place of second-generation youth in West Indian Pentecostalism in the diaspora: New York City and London (Janice McLean); Religion and masculinities in Africa: an opportunity for Africanization (Ezra Chitando); Rethinking women, nature, and ritual purity in Yoruba religious traditions (Bolaji Bateye); The impact of Christian women's organizations on Nigerian society (Dorcas Olu Akintunde); The Northern Nigerian Muslim woman: between economic crisis and religious puritanism (Oluwakemi Abiodun Adesina).
