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 contextualize 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 tradtiion.
