The Gospel Challenge: 30 years of Practical Application of Christian Social Teaching in the Nigerian Context
By George Ehusani
I have read through every line of this entire work of Fr. George Ehusani. The topics span around concerns for the Future, the Youth, Peace and Justice, Prophetic Witnessing, Religion and Society, Reconciliation and the Challenge of an Authentic National Renewal in Nigeria, etc. The submission is that “Living Faith” leads directly to “Loving Action” for the transformation of the world… It is with great delight that I recommend this book very highly to all people of Good Will.
---From the Introduction by Msgr. Francis Ike Obiora, Professor of Ethics

No doubt, this book will add to the much-needed material for a wide spectrum of Christians who will be exposed to the much-hidden treasure of the Christian Social Teachings, which we hope in a few years…will constitute the bedrock and part of the syllabi of political education in Nigeria. We owe Fr. Ehusani a debt of gratitude for a work that should become a reference point to all those who wish to understand the mind of the Church in the formation of a good society. This is a valuable text for not only clerical and lay leaders of the Church, but for all Christians and indeed all Nigerians.
