Man, Where Are You? is a most thoughtful book that connects the human person to the essence of the human soul. We are made in God’s image and likeness and are affirmed by this basic truth. Sr. Maria Chinelo U. Nwokafor, of the Congregation of the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, did a great work in depicting the inner workings of the Holy Spirit with humanity.

Oxford’s fabled streets echo with the names of such key figures in English history as Edmund Halley, John Wycliffe, and John and Charles Wesley. Of more recent times are those of C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, and the other members of the renowned literary circle to which they belonged, the Inklings. What would it be like to walk this medieval city’s narrow lanes in the company of such giants of Christian literature, to visit Magdalen College, where Lewis and Tolkien read aloud their works-­in-­progress to their friends, or the Eagle and Child pub, the Inklings’ favorite gathering place? The lavish photography of this book will introduce you to the fascinating world of the Inklings, matching their words to the places where these friends discussed---­and argued over---­theology, philosophy, ancient Norse myth, and Old Icelandic, while writing stories that were to become classics of the faith.

It is not necessary to keep the Sabbath to be saved; neither is worshipping on Sunday a sign of worshiping the beast. Every move of God had a specific purpose and some have fulfilled their purpose. Sunday Worship leads us from the Old Testament type to the New Testament reality. As King Solomon once said, “...­there is nothing new under the sun…” Worshiping on Sunday is not a new phenomenon but is deeply rooted in the Old Testament. God even forbids worshiping on Saturday as “the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the free woman. See for yourself.

Situations and circumstances often elicit the question: “Where is God ..?­” or “Why did God allow…?­” We often recognize the sovereignty of God but in so far as we are not adversely affected by the goings on. Extreme natural disasters rip the earth apart continually. Could God be intrinsically involved when to us as humans these drastic phenomena are inconsistent with His nature? Is God still in control or have we been abandoned to the devastating forces of nature? God is setting the stage for His return. He says “Behold I come quickly and my reward is with me.­”
