This month, we discuss Chinua Achebe's Arrow of God (1964).

Part of Achebe’s “African Trilogy” that began with Things Fall Apart, this novel focuses on Enzeulu, the chief priest of several Igbo villages in Nigeria, as he confronts Christian missionaries and colonial forces circa 1920. Achebe’s writing is full of Nigerian proverbs and seems simple on the surface, but he’s playing a deeper game. Who will lead the Igbo people into starvation, and who will bring them life? At what expense? If Enzeulu is an arrow in the bow of God, what is God’s purpose with him?
