ENUMCLAW, Wash., April 13, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- Reconciliation has been at the forefront of South African politics for hundreds of years, following subsequent Dutch, German, and British maneuvers for power, and can be traced as far back as the mid 1650s. In early 2011, screenings began for a documentary film featuring former South African president, Nelson Mandela, titled "Reconciliation: Mandela's Miracle."
A political player for several decades, Mandela is well-known for his role in dismantling the apartheid policy, instituted in 1948 to further subjugate black South African natives under white authority. While in office between 1994 and 1999, Mandela frequently emphasized the importance of reconciliation.
West African Nigerian pastor and author, Samson Adedokun, releases his first book, "The Compassionate God -- the Book of Hebrews" (Pleasant Word, 2010), and highlights the biblical book's delineating theme: reconciliation between man and God through Jesus Christ.
Through detailed examination of context, setting, and Hebrew culture, Mr. Adedokun reveals the vital relevance of this historical book to modern day readers, and Christians in particular.
"The object of the [Hebrews'] author's exegesis of the Old Testament Scripture was to give intensity and evidence to the epistle's general theme -- the supremacy of Jesus Christ -- and to substantiate the finality of the gospel."
Besides spiritual reconciliation, other emerging themes in "The Compassionate God" are:
- What gives Jesus Christ the right to cleanse people from sin?
- What are the three requirements of faith?
- What is unique about the cleansing that comes from Jesus Christ's sacrifice?
Mr. Adedokun is the CEO of Crowndesea Home Health Care, Inc., a Community Organizer, a Director of Crowndesea Financial Services, and pastor of New Baptist Christian Fellowship Church in Duncanville, Texas.
He was educated at Osun State College of Technology, Esa Oke (HND), and Dallas Baptist University (BAS) in Dallas, Texas. Samson is married to Becky; they are the proud parents of IniOluwa, IpinOluwa, and IsuraOluwa. The Adedokun family resides in Duncanville, Texas.
