Both Esu and Ifa/Orunmila hold the Yoruba cosmic system together. Esu is now part of what some may label as the Black Atlantic religion; part of the attempt to recover African religions in other lands; as well as part of the use of religion for survival.

Toyin Falola has coordinated nineteen essays into a richly textured discourse on Eshu, "the God without boundaries" (p. 3), by authors whose fields of expertise include anthropology, comparative religion, linguistics, history, philosophy, art history, and literature or who are religious practitioners. Falola takes as a central premise of the book that Eshu, as divine messenger, is critical to understanding Yoruba religion and worldview, not only in Africa but as these have developed in related religious and cultural traditions in the African diaspora.

In contrast, our volitions to move our bodies are but occasions for God to cause their movement.

This is the most extensive book on Esu, also known in different locations as Eleda, Exu, Cxu Eleggua, Cxu Elegbara, Legba, Elegba, Elegbera, or Odara. He is the ''divine messenger,'' central to the understanding of Yoruba religion and worldview, as well as their various manifestations and related orisa traditions in the African diaspora — such as Candomble, Vodou, and Santeria/Lukumi.Esu and Ifa (divination with all its sacred texts) or Orunmila (the god of divination) rank as the most widespread and the most worshipped of all the deities. Both Esu and Ifa/Orunmila hold the Yoruba cosmic system together. Esu is now part of what some may label as the Black Atlantic religion; part of the attempt to recover African religions in other lands; as well as part of the use of religion for survival. As the book points out, in Esu's ability to migrate to other lands, he becomes part of transatlantic history, but more so of the tension between relocation and history, between the violence that led to the forced migrations of people and the long healing process of reconciliation with living in strange lands that later became new homelands.

Great reference book on ESU and the Yoruba religion.

This is a good book. It arrived on time and in excellent shape. It is somewhat accademic , so it is a bit hard to read.
