Are we the turning point generation?

May 25, 2014

This provocative collection of essays reveals the voice of young man who is deeply  passionate about both his faith and his country. Jideonwo delves into the complexities of Nigeria  “which has become Africa’s largest exporter of Pentecostalism and one of the biggest sources of pilgrims to Israel and Mecca,” but where the corpse of his just deceased father would not be accepted by a hospital without a police report, a report which the police would not issue without being bribed. Jideonwo, in addressing his generation of Nigerians makes the compelling argument that everyone is a change maker and  challenges us to transform our frustration with the county into the motivation needed to drive the change we want to see.
