Abstract

Book Reviews 429 like project proposals than final analysis. They present a helpful overview of approaches and conclusions, but it remains at a general level and rarely gives a thorough examination of the issues. For example, how in specific terms is health collaboration enabled and where specifically is the faith-based perspective beneficial? The research claims as ‘revelatory’ some elements that are already well-documented, like the fact that Boko Haram is a complex socio-political entity with a deep history. Future volumes of research are anticipated. It is to be hoped that the contributors and editors will be able to articulate the significant elements of their work with greater confidence and precision. Their projects are surely worthy of such examination.
