While many writers have explored the impact of Christianity on indigenous African cultures, few have done so exclusively from the perspective of visual culture. This is hardly surprising considering the predilection of modern African art historical inquiry towards a secular narrative of contemporary African art. "Sacred images; An appraisal of Christian art in Owerri Archdiocese", seeks to fill this lacuna by attempting a contextualized interrogation of Christian art in an indigenous African setting. Lavishly illustrated with original photographs from the field, this highly readable text weaves a fascinating tapestry of a century of Christian art among the Owerri Igbo - from colonial times to the present era. It explores the origin, growth, challenges and prospects of this unique art genre by focusing on its typology, form, function and symbolism. . At once scholarly and accessible, it is an invaluable document for sociologists, theologians, art historians and anyone else interested in exploring and understanding the complex but engaging interface of Christian art with autochthonous African cultures.
