Author Chima Agazue discusses the influence of Pentecostal pastors on the Nigerian population in his new book, “The Role of a Culture of Superstition in the Proliferation of Religio-Commercial Pastors in Nigeria” (published by AuthorHouse).

An anthropological study of the intersection of African culture and Christianity, the book takes an in-depth look at how Christianity has shaped the continent in general and Nigeria in particular.

“It also,” adds Agazue, “delves into the psychology of religion, the sociology of religion and the study of religion itself.”

An excerpt from the book:

“Pastoring pays very well in Nigeria. Despite the increasing number of men and women abandoning their occupations to become pastors or prayer warriors in order to market exorcisms and to collect tithes and seeds, they often find themselves much more in demand than are doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists and so on.”
