The meeting between the Christian faith and the Igbo people's ancestral tradition in Achebe's novels appears as a confrontation between two different religious systems and views: Christianity with its dogmatic claim to announce the absolute truth and Igbo religion with no claim to the absoluteness of its -truths-. Achebe's portrayal of the two religions is compared with Igbo ethnography and recent history in order to show that his picture of his people's religion and its encounter with Christianity is authentic."
