Main Description
Jesus used images in story form (parables) relevant to his time and culture to teach his people subjects which cannot be brought to expression in literal speech. This book presents the significant and invaluable role of parables as traditional pedagogical method for teaching about Jesus Christ. In the Igbo Culture, story telling offers the challenges and possibilities of using parables in the work of evangelization in Africa. It shares some of the wisdom of Igbo culture in practical terms, which can enlighten people of all cultures. George Nnaemeka Oranekwu was ordained in 1995. He studied philosophy at Bigard, now St. Joseph's Major Seminary, Ikot-Ekpene (Nigeria) and theology at the Bigard Memorial Seminary, Enugu (Nigeria). He has a licentiate in theology at PTHV (Germany), an MBA in leadership and ethics in Luxembourg, as well as a doctorate in theology at the Albert-Ludwig University in Freiburg (Germany).
