Reviews

“In an age that has been dubbed a global era by reason of its import, Dr. Jude Ibegbu’s perspectives on democracy are liable to be noteworthy in the international community. First, it breaches national boundaries that have shielded inhumane practices against men and women who have no democratic rights because each nation is deemed to be entitled to rule on how its citizens are governed. Second, in many ways, Ibegbu elevates the democratic construct to the province of theological reasoning…. at once profound and intriguing. Needless to add, there is much in this tough book for political theorists and theologians to ponder.” – Dr. Peter P. Ekeh, SUNY at Buffalo
