Item description for African Wisdom: 101 Proverbs from the Motherland by Tokunboh Adelekan...

Overview
A bald head has no lice. Big fruit falls from big trees. And it takes a whole village to raise a child. These are just three of the more than 100 inspiring proverbs contained in this book. Many, unfortunately, merely associate the continent of Africa with poverty, disease, and conflict. In so doing they miss out on much of the wisdom that is waiting to be discovered from the motherland of civilization. By and large, it is a wisdom rooted in strong community bonds. The author helps readers discover many previously hidden treasures. His inspiring and instructive reflections point to overlapping themes to be found in African and in biblical spirituality.
