Item Description

Santeria is a topic that has produced plenty of controversy over the years. It has had to fight for its place in modern day society as a socially accepted religion, and at least in legal terms, has won. The followers of this faith have had to overcome scores of prejudice and discrimination. Yet there are still many who truly don't understand it. Author Christian Lopez invites those of you with the interest and curiosity, to share in his own personal views, beliefs, and experiences as a High Priest. "Lukumi" entices you to take a closer look into their world of destiny, corporal possessions, divination, and animal sacrifice. This book is meant to serve as an introduction to the fundamentals of Ifa and Orisha worship. Enjoy the ride!
