African Wisdom

101 Proverbs from the Motherland
  • By Tokunboh Adelekan
Product Description
"It takes a whole village to raise a child." "If you wash yourself with anger you never have clean hands." These are just a few of the more than 100 inspiring proverbs contained in this book. Many people, unfortunately, merely associate the continent of Africa with poverty, disease, and conflict. In so doing they miss out on much of the wisdom that is waiting to be discovered from the motherland of civilization. By and large, it is a wisdom rooted in strong community bonds. The author helps readers discover many previously hidden treasures. His inspiring reflections after each proverb point to overlapping themes to be found in African and in biblical spirituality.
