More > He brilliantly distinguished himself as a prizeman at Cambridge, and on leaving the University devoted himself enthusiastically to literary pursuits. Fame was speedily won by his contributions to the "Edinburgh Review," especially by his article on Milton. Though called to the bar at Lincoln's Inn, in 1826, Macaulay never practised, but through his strong Whig sympathies he was drawn into politics, and in 1830 entered Parliament for the pocket-borough of Calne.

More > sleepy session of the League of Nations in Geneva, when the newly elected President – a member of the Norwegian delegation – disappears mysteriously, adding some badly needed ‘spice’ to Henry's assignment.
Dated, but fun to read a mystery from a famous name writer from the past. Goodness, what an insight on the League of Nations, the forerunner of the United Nations, and on what passed for murders.< Less
This poetry book touches the social, political and economic life of Nigeria during the era of the dreadful regime of late General Sanni Abacha to the inauguration of the third republic. However, the... More > relevance of these poems to the times and trials of Africans, runs through many verses: from the ravages of useless tribal and international conflicts, elegiac verses on Africans like Ken Saro-Wiwa, Gani Fawehinmi and M.K.O Abiola to eulogistic verses on Wole Soyinka and Nelson Mandela. The poet employs a light and flowing diction tinge with humour to ridicule issues, which many considered serious. Issues which had, sometimes, caused so much divisiveness among Africans.< Less

Why are Christians worried about the Shariah? The Shariah forbids fornication, adultery, stealing, alcoholism and other vices which are equally condemned by Christianity.Therefore, why are Christians... More > worried about the Shariah? It is not enough to condemn the Shariah just because it is Islamic nor is it enough to condemn it because of the stiff and rather harsh penalties it recommends for some crimes. The truth is that, there are many more things to the issue of the Shariah than meet the eye. Therefore, the Christian will have to look behind the Shariah with the discerning eye of the Holy Spirit in order to uncover the hidden goals of the Shariah. Whenever, we see Satan seeming to fight against himself, we need to be wary because there MUST be a catch somewhere. As we allow the Holy Spirit to take us behind the Shariah, we shall see that catch, which has been cleverly covered up in the Shariah.< Less

Just as the Lord in His grace met this graduate of Islamic Religion, in like manner the current of the Holy Spirit flowing through these poems can change the life and situation around you for the best.
God bless you as you read it.

How To Convert A Muslim
In every heart of an unbeliever, be he a Muslim, an atheist or whatever, there is always a Foundational Difference or a Satanic Foundation. What many Christian evangelists fail to realize is that... More > when a man does not believe in Jesus Christ, it does not mean that such a fellow does not believe in anything. He believes in something, albeit, not Jesus Christ. Whatever is that belief becomes the Foundational Difference or that Satanic Foundation, which must be dismantled before any impact could be made by any Christian evangelist.
The attempt in this book is to expose this Satanic Foundation of Islam and then use the divine hammer of the Holy Spirit to dismantle it. The attempt is not to underscore the efficacy of prayers to destroy any satanic device, but adequate grasp or knowledge of any situation we are praying about is equally essential in order not to pray amiss< Less
