Item description for A Patriot to the Core: Bishop Ajayi Crowder by Ajayi Crowther...

Beyond the common memorial of a slave boy whose destiny twisted and was elevated to the dignity of the first Anglican black Bishop, the charismatic quality and robust achievements of the man, Bishop Ajayi Crowther, are hardly ever remembered or commended. This book thus represents a gap-filling exposition of his productive life and career as Bishop: His theory that African clergy were best suited to evangelise Africa; his idea that an indigenous economic base was a sine qua non for African evangelisation; his pioneering work of evangelisation in Abeokuta and among the Igbo, and in Lokoja and Northern Nigeria; his support for the establishment of the Delta churches which he had founded as a Pastorate independent of the British-controlled CMS; his contribution to knowledge through his linguistic studies on Yoruba, Igbo, Hausa, Ijo and other Nigerian languages and translation of the Bible into Yoruba, the record of his travels up the Niger in 1841 and up the Benue in 1854, with some of the most notable early writings on the Peoples and Cultures of the Niger/Benue Valley. All these constituted laudable accomplishments of love and service to his fatherland, standing him out, undisputedly, as indeed a great Patriot to the Core.
