Stunted Babies – Spiritual Paediatrics – How To Win Souls And Keep Them- Paperback
Glory be to God for this timely effort from Rev. Davidson Okpala.
It could not have come at a better time than now, given the fact that despite the enormous commitment of financial and human resources to evangelism by churches, Christian groups and individuals, the fruits of these effort are hardly enduring. The implication of this includes the fact that converts or otherwise ‘babies’ in the Lord soon make a U-turn not long after they are converted.
They return to the world or still remain lukewarm afterwards because the all important element of followup is missing.
The body of Christ (Church) has lost so many new converts as a result of the failure to follow-up or doing so wrongly, such that, there is no nurturing of our efforts. It is akin to planting in a garden and failing to water the plants. The consequence of this is discernable and obvious. Therefore, this book, Effective fol- low-up for Churches & Christian Groups, is a call to an “official” duty. Also it is a reminder of a failed duty. It will definitely ginger workers in the vineyard at various levels to the important need of saving those God has been sending to the Church.
In fact, many people may not find the title of the work appealing, especially as it is not dealing with the ever popular elements of miracle, prosperity, signs and wonders, healing and breakthrough. Yet, the very basis of the church is em- bodied in evangelism and caring which is summed up in follow-up.
The problem is that many Christians neglect this aspect which is the pilot of spiritual fruitfulness.
I recommend this book to all Christian groups, churches and individuals, especially those who are burdened in their hearts with populating the kingdom of heaven and saving souls from eternal destruction.
No doubt, it is also a virile weapon for church growth. God bless you as you use it.MIKE OFOEBU.
