Emmanuel Gbadebo Ayinla Babatunde D.PHIL (Oxon); PhD (Lon).’s book, Kelebogile – I am Grateful: An African Journey through Celibate Priesthood to Married Life ($21.49, paperback, 9781545647936; $9.99, e-book, 9781545647943), is now available.

Kelebogile – I am Grateful: An African Journey through Celibate Priesthood to Married Life follows the lives of two Africans from different parts of Africa and different Christian sects. Emmanuel was an extroverted Nigerian man, and Kelebogile was an introverted South African woman. Emmanuel is an ex-Catholic priest and Kelebogile is the daughter of a Methodist Pastor.

Nevertheless, they married, and Kelebogile – I am Grateful offers commentary on the ongoing dialogue that celibacy may not be made a condition for the Catholic Priest.
