THE PATH TO CHRISTIAN GROWTH VOL 4
A rich compilation of essays addressing age-old challenges and contemporary ones in Christendom by Venerable Akinwande from 2009 to 2010 whilst he was the Dean of the Cathedral Church of St. Jude, Ebute Meta. Direct and illuminating, Akinwande dissects issues with the clinical precision of the scientist, his first calling, and the warmth and sensitivity of his latter pastoral calling. The Author comes across as a disciplined writer who takes his faith seriously.
