I just recently got this book back from my mom. I loaned it a year or so ago to her.

It's tough finding a book that is good for someone who is curious about ATR practices, but needs a bit more than just the usual history lesson of where it came from and all of that.

The author does a great job of simplifying things without making it TOO basic...

Tobe really captures some of my own practices and views experienced while practicing my religion. She also explains a few of the essential Patakis/Stories that make the base of our spiritual beliefs. A must read for Orisa initiates.
Correal's easy prose is a great book for non-initiates to Ifa. Correal provides a concise summary of Ifa, the Orisa, the importance of ancestors, and how to set up an ancestral shrine. I've used it as reference guide consistently over the years.

As a beginning student, I found this book quite informative and well written. I learned a great deal and will probably re-read soon :)
A must read for any devotee of an Orisha tradition and a good starter book for anyone who wants to learn about these traditions. The book is a good, in depth look at the theology and ethics of the Orisha traditions.
This is a very refreshing take on the factors that go into making a decision to pursue a spiritual path, Orisa or otherwise. I am grateful to the author and her spirit guides!
great book i think
