Set in the Ibo heartland of eastern Nigeria, one of Africa's best-known writers describes the conflict between old and new in its most poignant aspect: the personal struggle between father and son.

The third book in Achebe's "African Trilogy", following Things Fall Apart and No Longer at Ease , Arrow of God is the story of Ezeulu, the chief priest of several villages who wrestles with colonial powers as he butts heads with Christian missionaries dispatched to the area. A fictional discussion of Colonial rule in 1920's Nigeria, Achebe brings religion and family relations into a discussion of politics and national identity.

A profound work of literature. I enjoyed this book the most of the three in Achebe's African trilogy. Achebe's skill as a novelist is evident in the structure, pacing, and craft of this book.

Also, this is actually the third novel in Achebe's trilogy, if you want to read them in order of publication:
Things Fall Apart (1958)
No Longer at Ease (1960)
Arrow of God (1964)
