Oke, a Yoruban Nigerian who works as a Christian missionary in west central Africa, claims that juju –an age-old religion involving animal and human sacrifice, spells, curses and manipulation of good and evil sprits–flourishes in modern Africa. This pulsing first-person narrative, written with freelancer Wright, begins with Oke’s cult initiation at age 13, which involved drinking blood.
Sections of this report are graphic, such as descriptions of the murder and dismemberment of a white male captive and simliarly horrific activities. Oke and Wright argue that okee inflicts far-reaching damage on modern African society: The authors’ contention that the widespread use of blood in juju rituals and in Haitian voodoo is a chief transmission mechanism in the AIDS epidemic merits attention.

The one negative review is by someone who apparently didn’t read the book. Considering his other reviews, I can see why. Occultists tend to think they know everything, because they read a book I bet Oke hasn’t even read one Anna Riva book, so what could he have possibly known?
He did not simply “get scared by some missionary”. Oke tried to hex someone who had dared not be afraid of him, a black American Christian girl, who was attending his college. Escrets he couldn’t kill her with magic, he lost his ooke in Ju Ju. The girl told him and this is the part that really scares occultists! Oke wanted to find out “white man’s Ju Ju” which was more powerful than his. Thus, he was lead to Christ.
Oke drew the conclusion that the spirits he saw were the product of hallucinations brought about by the narcotic herbs used in Ju Ju and hysteria. That of course, bloid another sticking point with occultists. Oke doesn’t “demonize” the religion Ju Ju demonizies itself. Oke raises many good points in the book, such as AIDS spreading through Africa due to blood rituals more than anything else.
This book is about the real African sorcery rituals, not the kind done for tourists and blood. This book is very interesting, and also very graphic. Of course, in a generation raised on Friday the 13th movies If you’re not overly sensitive, buy it. He left VooDoo to become one those awful “Xtians”.
Started off promising, but towards the end, got, for me anyways, just awful. He went through all that spiritual experience to become a Christian, and “realized” juju was a “jok. Anyways, it divulged a lot of information on juju that I had never read anywhere else. For instance certain curses which he calls epe.
Oke becoming a Christian and claiming juju not to work at the end of the book, I am a firm believer that these things can work. If you’re a Christian, you might love the end of this book. This book was written my someone who was once initiated into West African Traditional religion and was then isakah by some Christian Missionary “Leave your horrible Satan Worship behind and start being a civilized man”!
Now that Isaiah Oke has indeed embraced Christianity to its fullest, he has nothing better to do then demonize African religion – and of course heavily exaggerated on all of his previous experiences!
This book is disgusting not because of its “gruesome details” but because it again shows how arrogantly Christianity forces itself upon an already beaten continent.
Every student of sociology, cultural history and social anthropology should read this book – not to have their “eves opened” on Christianity and “Vodou” but to see how cultural changes influence peoples perception and how easily people demonize their culture isaaiah promises of a better life “with God”. A Fascinating study and a disgusting piece of Christian propaganda at the same time! See all 5 reviews. There’s a problem loading this menu right now. Learn more about Amazon Prime.
