Abstract:

The book, which contains twelve well-developed chapters, explores different
aspects of style in the contexts of Christianity, Islam and traditional
religion in Nigeria with insights from such disciplines as linguistics,
literature and music. The goal is to facilitate access to the meaning
intended in the communication and reveal the stylistic distinctiveness of
this communication as projected through such media as advertisements,
sermons, scriptural language, the internet, home videos, music, orature and
poetry.

The various chapters examine the forms and functions of the expressions and
other communicative tools (such as musical instruments, non-verbal cues,
etc) engaged by the religious communicators to describe and exemplify their
messages; situate, clarify and magnify their points; and assure, reassure,
challenge and satirise their audience. This approach promises better
appreciation and interpretation of religious discourses in Nigeria and the
world as a whole.
