The Men Who Wrestle With God
THE MEN WHO WRESTLE WITH GOD is written in Nigerian setting and reveals what powers and desires can do to man. To Satisfy their desires, four chiefs of Aneile Kingdom: Ebiloma, Abalaka, Ocheja and Idachaba conspire among themselves to displace the Supreme Heavenly Powers and dethrone King Onuchowgu, the annointed one. The Chiefs seek the collaboration of Ogecha, the Chief Priest of the Kingdom and the battle line is now drawn. It is humanity versus divinity; mortals against the immortals; the terrestrial against the celestial and the physical against the metaphysical! Aneile is boiling in calamity. Innocent women, children and youth are dying. Famine, diseases, evil, oppression and injustice now torment the land, yet the chiefs are adamant to wrestle with the powers from the above. They are sure of nothing short of victory. Can any opponent be underestimated in a battle? Will the order of things still remain the same at the end of the battle? Is it going to be the case of a dog wagging the tail or the tail wagging the dog at the end? The world has never in history recorded a battle as awe-striking as this!
