When early in 1997 two of my colleagues, Dr. Deji Ayegboyin and Dr. Ademola Ishola approached me to write the foreword to their new book: African Indigenous Churches: An Historical Perspective, I was taken aback. The former had been my postgraduate student in Ibadan from the time he did his Masters and proved to be one of the our finest students. The latter, an acquaintance, too, is relatively known to me. I was soon to find out some more similarities about them. Both hailed from Ogbomoso, and of comparable ages, outlook, disposition, diction, complexion and height. Both are of the Baptist extraction and had sojourned in Ghana in their early years where they received part of their formal education.
