Sharing my thoughts and putting my message accross

“Africa’s Diabolical Entrapment” gets a starred Review from the Pacific Book Review!

Preparatory to the announcement of the winner of the Pacific Book Awards for 2019, the Pacific Book Reviewers have completed work on my second book “Africa’s Diabolical Entrapment”. This is one of two books nominated from the list of books authored by me, for the 2019 awards. In the review of this book the Pacific Book Review went one extra mile to award its rare star to this book “of excellent merit” in its own words. The Reviewer gave me an extra honor by calling for the inclusion of this book in “the collection of readers of African intellectuals who challenge religion like Wole Soyinka”. The name of this great African writer mentioned in this context is abundantly flattering and honoring to my person. This is a great day that will be surpassed only by the day I emerge victorious in the award.

Title: Africa’s Diabolical Entrapment: Exploring the Negative Impact of Christianity, Superstition and Witchcraft on Psychological, Structural and Scientific Growth in Black Africa!

Africa’s Diabolical Entrapment is a provocative and thought-provoking book by Nigerian journalist Frisky Larr about the influence of religion on the African continent. Larr’s book will inspire readers to rethink the way they look at different faiths. Africa starts with Larr’s theory that religion is harmful to the advancement of African people. His text starts with him recounting how indigenous religions in Africa have been perceived as witchcraft among his native Nigerians. He also recounts harrowing stories about superstitions such as twins being bad luck leading to them being killed in the name of religion. Larr shares how Western religion is misused under the guise of “prosperity gospel” by materialistic ministers to gain money from impoverished parishioners. Larr argues that only belief in science and logic would help developing countries in Africa advance more.

Larr is an intellectual who bravely challenges conventional wisdom and established institutions. He offers a unique perspective on religion’s reach into Africa as an African writer who has seen the results of the changes religions cause firsthand. His writing is a
mixture of biting critique, perceptive insight, and well-researched historical anecdotes.

Larr’s writing blends personal recollections with artifacts from the past to create a wellrounded text.

Larr not only critiques religion but offers suggestions on how African countries can maintain the historic past of religion while embracing the future of scientific progress. By mentioning his own personal journey from Nigerian child to a renowned journalist in
Europe, Larr shows how anyone can change their circumstances through education and perseverance.

Africa’s Diabolical Entrapment would be best for readers who are skeptics of religion and advocate science over faith. Larr’s text would be ideal for fans of atheist or scientific experts like Stephen Hawkins or Richard Dawkins. The book could be added to the collection of readers of African intellectuals who challenge religion like Wole Soyinka.
Even religious readers can gain insight into how faith can be misused so they can learn how to make their faith more inclusive and less imperial in other countries. The book could be discussed in African history, science, or even world religion courses.

Africa’s Diabolical Entrapment is a book that will inspire readers to lean more about African customs, beliefs, and intellectual growth. Larr has written a book that will make an impact on readers.
