Dark spiritual powers are at work in the world and the church has to receive a renewed sense of its mission to be a shining light. However, many believe that the negative overtones of unpalatable Bible concepts could be more easily absorbed if the listeners were engaged on another level. This book examines the basis of such engagement and draws comparisons with more traditional approaches. The challenge for those who are eager to evangelise in a pluralist culture is to recognise afresh the many-faceted Gospel and to find new ways of communicating its core concepts, such as sin and atonement,in the midst of what some have described as a "sinless" society. The research in this volume was conducted in the context of a post-Catholic Irish society that has largely abandoned the absolutes of a disgraced hierachy.

The contemporary Irish context presents a totally changed, and still changing, religious, political and cultural landscape, which has undoubtedly affected attitudes, beliefs and practices of people across generations. From being a ‘sin-dominated,’ ‘guilt-ridden’ culture, Ireland appears to have emerged as a comparatively ‘sinless’ society, at least on an individual level, with sin and guilt being confined to the collective arena. After examining theological and biblical perspectives on sin and guilt from an evangelical standpoint and outlining the major shifts in societal thinking on these concepts, this piece of research records and analyses data obtained during interviews with young evangelicals, to ascertain to what extent contemporary cultural views and/or their church teaching and experience have influenced their understanding of sin and guilt. The findings suggest some interesting learning points for current church leaders.

Okonko Society is one of the Traditional Societies in Igboland that functions as an authentic component of African Religion. While the social units of the family, the kindred, and the ethnic group, have protective values for individuals within them, Okonko operates as additional protection consolidated with religious and mystery rites. The mystery rites and secrecy associated with Okonko Society are unbelievable, and the Society has been surrounded with controversy since the advent of Christianity in Igboland. In order to create a platform of dialogue between African Religion and Christianity, a comparative analysis of Okonko and Christianity is undertaken within this context. The work examines the origin, nature, functions, and membership of Okonko Society in Igboland on the framework of Christian sacraments of Initiation. In all, Okonko Society and Christianity can coexist in Igboland for a balanced society.
