Elebuibon has provided another classic for the English speaking Ifa/Yoruba community. Sometimes his English diction is difficult to understand, but the information presented is invaluable to the study of Ifa and Yoruba culture. The author effectively uses modern experience to illucidate the traditional verses of Odu. Further he provides a clear understanding of the nature of sacrifice and the value of sacrifice as a spiritually healing force in the modern world.
