This is a pioneer study of contemporary Nigeria's most controversial new religious movement known as Brotherhood of the Cross and Star (BCS). After discussing the biography of the charismatic and enigmatic founder and leader of the movement, the book examines its beliefs and practices and the social and religious impact they have had on its thousands of adherents who come from all social strata in Africa, the Americas, Europe, India, and the West Indies, many of them drawn from mainline Christian churches. Attention is paid to the way the founder of BCS reinterprets familiar Christian doctrines. The book ends with a chapter in which the author applies to BCS certain theories from the Sociology of Religion.
