Theory of Social Involvement examines the dynamic interplay between church, state, and society. Sunday A. Aigbe considers the Christian factor as it relates to the sociopolitical responsibility and development in Nigeria. The study assesses the role of the church as well as identifies and develops ways in which Christianity can serve as an agent of change and promote unity within Nigeria.

MEDIA REVIEWS
An excellent example of anthropological principles applied within a state-systems context. Aigbe is especially adept at analyzing religious institutions and tracing their impacts upon elements of African society. The case study material is rich. -- Peter W. VanArsdale, Graduate School of International Studies, University of Denver
The work as a whole is a brilliant and dedicated attempt to formulate a new direction for the evangelistic work of the AGN and other evangelical churches of Nigeria. The author is to be highly commended for his insightful and painstaking research. -- Donald C. Flatt, MISSOLOGY
It would be difficult to imagine the study of contemporary Nigerian Christianity without the aid of this useful volume. -- Russell P. Spittler, Fuller Theological Seminary
