A deep dive into the Ozo Title taking culture and tradition


Dr. Joachim Ifezuo Oforchukwu shares his insights and educated hypothesis on ways to effectively inculturate the Ozo title taking the tradition of the Igbos into Christianity.
In his book, “Inculturating the Ozo Title Taking into Christianity,” Dr. Oforchukwu shares his research on the real status of the relationship between the Roman Catholic Church and the Ozo title holders. Contrary to the belief that Igbos are kingless, the author debunks it and showed that they actually have structured society and a very complex leadership system. Igbo Enwe Eze which directly translates to, the Igbos have no king was a common misconception by early missionaries, colonialists, and neighboring ethnic groups. This has caused the church, prior to Vatican Council II, to have a negative outlook towards Ozo title holders and in effect alienate them.
This book will give you a more in-depth perspective on the complexities and uniqueness of the Ozo title culture. This will lead to a better understanding of the Igbos culture and will give the Catholic church an idea on what approach can be effective to inculturate Ozo title taking.
The author offers a one-of-a-kind paradigm shift for readers and clears up the cobwebs so that people can comprehend the distinctiveness of this tradition and understand the reasons as to why it is important to preserve such culture. Complete with statistics and graphics for better visual interpretation, the book will certainly take you on an educational journey and will certainly provoke your cognitive senses. Dr. Oforchukwu also shares a constructive guideline that if effectively followed, can definitely help Igbo communities that practice Ozo title taking, have a more solid outline, and make significant strides toward Christian inculturation.
Indeed, this book is another showcase of brilliance from Dr. Oforchukwu. Learn more about the culture of the Igbos. Stimulate your mind and broaden your understanding.
