Biblical Principles for Africa
Biblical Principles for Africa By: Peter Hammond
VERY Good Condition. (Clean, crisp pages. Tight binding. Obviously barely read. One dogeared page.)
Some years ago, Dr. Peter Hammond met with General Godfrey Miyanda in Lusaka, Zambia. General Miyanda had also been a prisoner in Lusaka Central Prison under the Kaunda regime. General Miyanda later served as Vice President of Zambia and as Minister of Education. On this occasion Dr. Hammond delivered to him a pile of great Christian books to assist him in his ministry. However, as General Miyanda looked at the high pile of books, he groaned. He loves reading, but the demands of his office gave him little time for study. He asked: "Don't you have a small book? One that summarises all of these?" It was in response to that challenge that Biblical Principles for Africa was produced. It presents over two decades of study, ministry, conducting Biblical Worldview Summits throughout Africa and writing.
