Why do Nigerian Christians and Muslims riot, kill and destroy? Why should religion bring Nigeria constantly to the brink? Who is to blame for all this terror? Muslims? Christians? Both? Neither? What are the causes for all this violence? Are they religious? Political? These are the questions this book answers from the Nigerian Christian point of view. The volume in your hand is the third in a series called Studies in Christian-Muslim Relations. It provides extensive coverage of Nigerian Christian opinions about Nigerian riots. Included are many quotations so that you may hear the voice of Nigerian Christians themselves. Volume 1 describes the Nigerian riots. Volume 2 gives the Muslim perspective on these riots. Later volumes will deal with other issues that cause friction between the two religions. The overall aim of this series is to help both constituencies work towards a solution of which both will be proud.
