This decision came after the sacrifice of Ikemefuna who was 16 | P a g e almost a brother to Nwoye. Nwoye was totally against the decision made by Igbo to kill his brother, hence he protests against this act by joining the church and choosing to attend school. His father on the other hand is not at all pleased with Nwoye’s decision to join Christianity. Although Okonkwo is disappointed in his son’s choice he does not act on it. It is then assumed that Okonkwo somehow expected this kind of behaviour from his son as he always saw Nwoye as “weak and woman-like” (Strong-Leek 2).

The definition of what is worthwhile to a person is inherently unquantifiable, as it relies on a return on investment that is difficult to tease out as directly related to an input. Questioning whether life's choices have meaning allows for the deeper question of if life itself is worthwhile, as life is lived through our choices. In order for life to be worthwhile, one's life must not be self-contained. This would be demonstrated by a tangible effect present after one's life. The conclusion made by society has shifted over time, but ultimately favored life as meaningful.
