In The Embattled Gods, Kalu presents the very first holistic account of Igbo Church history. Throughout the analysis Kalu has three main concerns: the first is for the book to serve as a handbook on how to study church history in an African context. The second is to reconstruct from a vast array of sources and multidisciplinary resources the patterns of the coming of Christianity into various parts of Igboland. The third explores the new dimensions of Igbo Christianity in the post Civil War period.
