Discover answers to life's questions using the Ifa Oracle -- an ancient African divination tool and the spiritual foundation for Candomble, Santeria, and Vodun. Compared by Henry Louis Gates Jr, to the Homeric epics, the Bible, and the Koran, the Ifa Oracle stands as 'a monument to human imagination, poetry, and will'. Now, for the first time, all 256 sacred stories of this ancient oral tradition have been translated into English by Dr Afolabi Epega, a fifth generation babalawo, or Ifa priest. With a preface and introduction that contextualise the powerful messages of Ifa wisdom for modern life, and classic and Western interpretations by American babalawo Philip Neimark and Dr Epega, The Sacred Ifa Oracle stands as the definitive text on this timeless philosophical tradition.
