Deji Yesufu is a very passionate man, and you get to see all of his passion expressed in his writing. If he’s not pointing us to or warning us of the dangers and errors of false bible teachers, he is challenging our conscience to doing the right thing as citizens, challenging us towards nation-building. – Pasotr Taye Arimoro
Deji Yesufu compiled HUMANITY, a collection of 101 pieces, over a decade. These essays have now been collected in this book to convey a unified idea: that God’s grace was made evident through the creation of man. The book discusses four important facets of human life: religion, politics, economy and society. Whereas politics is the tale of how men decide to rule themselves, religion expresses man’s belief in the supernatural, society is the setting in which men live and the economy is man’s effort at surviving within all these. The Christian worldview, as taught in the Bible, benefits humanity greatly. It also attempts to provide pertinent commentary on subjects that pertain to daily living.
Certain elements of the book could be considered the author’s memoir. He also reflects on what truth is in other passages. The main takeaway is that we can all make the most of our time on earth while anticipating spending all of eternity with God in the afterlife. The author demonstrates how humans are the pinnacle of God’s creation and that our current location on earth is not by chance. All of the events in our lives, good or bad – past, present, and or future – are a part of the epic tale that God is telling. We should be grateful for our privilege to be part of His-story.
