The book is primarily about God’s voice, God’s direction, God’s guidance, God’s protection, and deciphering God’s will for your life in these last days where there are many voices competing for our attention. There are those that teach God does not speak today. Then there are those that teach God speaks in many ways and in everything; nature, audible voices, circumstances etc. God spoke in the past, God speaks now, and God will be speaking for all eternity. From the time God spoke the world into existence to now, He has never stopped speaking to and through His creation – and He will continue to speak throughout eternity. The question is how does He speak today, and who is listening? This book shows, from Scriptures, how to know the voice of the true and living God in these last days of confusion and deception. Our Lord warned us that the world would be characterized by deception in the last days according to 2nd Timothy 3:1,3; and also admonished that “My sheep know my voice” in John 10:27.

The time has gone by when any one man could hope to write an adequate text book of psychology. The science has now so many branches, so many methods, so many fields of application, and such an immense mass of data of observation is now on record, that no one man can hope to have the necessary familiarity with the whole. But, even when a galaxy of learning and talent shall have written the text book of the future, there will still be need for the book which will introduce the student to his science, which will aim at giving him at the outset of his studies a profitable line of approach, a fruitful way of thinking of psychological problems, and a terminology as little misleading as possible. The present volume is designed to render these services.
A project of women's advancement in society and church life engages a multi-disciplinary and interdisciplinary approach in its quest for social transformation. In recent decades, governments, particularly in Africa, have employed various political, economic, and other social modi operandi in their attempt to advance women's participation more fully in society. The discussions on these pages seek to contribute to the women's discourse with insights from the theology and culture; more specifically, from name designation. The expression, what is in a name, falls flat on its face in most African cultures as well as the cultures that produced the Bible. In these traditions, a name is not merely a convenient collocation of sounds by which a person could be identified. Rather a name represents a story and can express something of the essence of that which is named. The power inherent in the way names are constructed and interpreted, both in terms of the Handmaid in the New Testament and more directly in the Igbo culture, contribute to the strengthening of patriarchy. Such construal potentially exclude women from full participation in social processes, and in so doing deprive society as a whole of the synergy of human potential. The discussion of Mary as Handmaid centers on the role of women in Catholic theology, so she becomes the vehicle for examining the role of the second-class citizen assigned to women in the Church, then and now. Drawing from textual and oral history, the book reinterprets in a liberative manner female names both from Igbo tradition as well as Chinua Achebe's Anthills of the Savannah. Thus the freight that a name designation carries makes imperative the exploration of its redemptive significance.
