This is an unusual and unique book! Ancient wisdom and Godly admonition couched in poetic, prosaic, proverbial sayings and adages are used to minister to modern man, impatient and headline prone. In this work, Man is shown as dangerously astray and must be corrected with this relentless poetic portrayal of right and wrong. It is profound in power, wisdom and wit. Its more than a motivational book in its clarion call to reject evil and support the triumph of the good . With the boldness of a prophet, Gregory Odiakosa speaks up roundly condemning the oddities staring us in the face daily, the subtle attack on and neglect of the family, natural marriage, the scientific cross breeding of IVF and some stem cell researches, population control, increased legalization of gay marriage, abortion, euthanasia, genetically modified babies, transgender surgeries etc; all of which are systematic radical departures from our once cherished moral and societal values which are now in the throes of extinction in the face of science and modernity.
