Nwoye converts to Christianity for multiple reasons, one of them being that he finds it as a motive to get back at Okonkwo for the crime of killing Ikemefuna, and because he wants a different way of life. He also wants to convert so he can learn reading and writing and gain a basic education, which of course Okonkwo is not pleased with, he wonders why and how he was able to father a weak and feminine son. “‘How then could he have begotten a son like Nwoye, degenerate and effeminate?’” (Achebe 153).
