LAY ESSAYS OF SELECTED TOPICS ON CHRISTIAN DOCTRINE by Adolphus Karibi-Whyte
The composite body of the Christian family consists of the Clergy and the Laity. These two are not polarised but constitute one united body for the propagation and evangelisation of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. This book is a collection of essays on the doctrines of the Church written to draw attention to the apparent inadequacies in the understanding of the latter group, the laity.
Its treatise examines texts of the Bible, the peculiarities of its authorship and its ethics that serve as a guide for Christians. It looks at the philosophical consideration of who God is and man’s concept of God. It discusses Christian baptism and its meaning, the sacrament of the last supper, the doctrine of atonement, the Trinity and lastly, forgiveness and reconciliation, which can be regarded as the Christian alchemy to the world’s ills.
The potent message of this book is simple to read and easy to grasp. It aims to foster a deeper understanding of Scriptural truth, increase the Christian’s theological and biblical literacy, and stimulate thought and action in a world where Christianity is undervalued and often undermined by people and forces that shape contemporary cultures. I therefore recommend this timeless scholarly work to the reading populace. - Ven. Rufus T. Etire
