My graduating class was blessed with two very visionary teachers in the area of anthropology and world history, Ron Rehner and David Keeley. Together they brought a perspective of Nigeria and Southeast Asia, respectively, that transcended the common myths and stereotypes of the late 60's, early 70's. We were given the rare gift of clarity by gentlemen that had been there, done that, as it were. One of Mr. Rehner's required readings was Mr. Achebe's "Things Fall Apart". It was a lesson and an experience some of us never forgot. R.I.P., Mr. Achebe, and thank you most kindly for the insights your efforts provided us with.

I came to know of Mr. Achebe from his book "things fall apart". That was 38 years ago, and I still reference it today. Mr. Achebe has been the conscience or my sub-conscience.May God bless his family.

During this time, it is good to recall why Jesus died. He died so that we might have hope of the resurrection and much more.

I read his book "Things Fall Apart" whenI was a freshman in college for my Literature class. Great men die and take all of the wisdom with them. This was one GREAT man! God bless you on your journey. May rest and peace be yours.

Although I had lived in Nigeria for two years as a Peace Corps Volunteer, I was not introduced to his work until I entered a graduate program at Ohio University. Later I introduced several of his works at Penn State Harrisburg along with other African novelists. I was fortunate to attend one of Professor Achebe's lectures at the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. His works had a profound impact on my understanding of Nigeria and its people.

Dear Achebe Family,
We are sorry to hear about your loss. The Bible assures us that God is near to those broken at heart. He will help us cope with the loss of a loved one.

He sounds like a man full of wisdom that he shared with many. May the family find comfort in knowing that God is there for us in times of distress.
