The agricultural sector is an important sector that often contributes to the growth of the overall economy of many nations. In the past, the sector has contributed much to the Nigerian economy. However, because of the oil glut that emerged, various administrations shifted their attentions to the oil sector, thus neglecting or paying lip service to...

Over the years, the translation of hevel as "vanity" has had great influence in the history of the exegesis of Ecclesiastes. This present author has often heard or seen preachers use the text under study to caution people about the "vanity" of life and of acquisition of riches. Often preachers have used this text to call their audience to "abandone...

This book is written from the Afro-centric perspective; for this reason, African ideas about nature will be emphasized more than Western ideas about nature. I have chosen to adopt this approach because I am an African and I think there is a reason why God created me an African. As we are going to mention later in this book, Africans have a deeper s...

Many commentators have often interpreted the text literally or figuratively but have not bothered to reexamine it to realize or appreciate its polemics.

Many evangelical Christians would have negative responses to these questions. Besides, recentl...

Forgiveness, reconciliation, and Shalom (peace) are important teachings and attitudes promoted in the Bible. Readers of the Bible are familiar with the Esau and Jacob saga. Although the narrative is undoubtedly an interesting one; many have often misconstrued and misinterpreted it. Esau has often been accused of been profane, sensual and thus,...

Abstract During Jesus’ earthly ministry, He said many parables in order to effectively communicate heavenly truth to His audience. His parables were very interesting as they summarized His mission on earth. In fact, one cannot correctly understand the teachings of Jesus without first having a proper understanding of His use of parables and metaphor...

This study examined some of the threats confronting the contemporary Nigerian church. The present state of the church especially, the so-called Pentecostal/charismatic movements in Nigeria is becoming a subject of great concern not only among true believers, but also among the unbelieving observers. The church is gradually believing and teaching so...
