[Sexuality] is the name that can be given to a historical construct: not a furtive reality that is difficult to grasp, but a great surface network in which the stimulation of bodies, the intensification of pleasures, the incitement to discourse, the formation of special knowledges, the strengthening of controls and resistances, are linked to one another, in accordance with a few major strategies of knowledge and power.(Foucault in History of Sexuality)

This book is a concise and deliberate effort to communicate the Christian faith from the point of view of the Catholic Church by elaborating in detail such areas of the faith that many people have not been able to come to terms with in the living experience of their faith. The book seeks to answer such salient questions that pertain to theology, moral ethics, spirituality, doctrine and scripture. It also touches on the metaphysical nature of life after death. It is a good material for scholars, students of theology, catechetical instructions on the sacraments, the church and other doctrinal issues. There could be no other good companion during dull and relaxed moments than a copy of this book.

I decided to collect poems for this anthology because of two reasons. The first was the fact that poetry is often the most written of the three genres. This is understandably so: the emotive efficacy of poetry argues its especial patronage by writers particularly in a very emotionally stressful nation like Nigeria. Unfortunately, publishing outlets are very hard to come by. This was my second reason for embarking on this project. I felt it would provide a publishing opportunity for the many poems written in Nigeria.
