The church preached self-reliance and self-determination for Africans, using the Piby as its guiding document. The Holy Piby is made up of four books. The next, "The Second Book of Athlyi Called Aggregation", is the largest, with fifteen chapters, the seventh of which identifies Marcus Garvey  as one of three apostles of God. That book is followed by a series of catechism -style questions and answers wherein Garvey, Davis and Poston are proclaimed to be the saviors of the "down trodden children of Ethiopia ". It is very rare.

Those who want to believe, will believe. It's the same for all holy books. We all rubbish other people's holy books or patronise them as a series of folk tales and legends, but our own are held as the only true Truth. Their various gods with magical powers we doubt as being more than imagination and exaggeration, but in our own book, whichever one it is, these are, as one religion puts it so well, the Word made flesh.
