‘Engrossing.’ Monica Ali ‘Heartbreaking and really funny.’ Ross Gay ‘This book fell into my heart.’ Sabrina Mahfouz ‘The kind of authentic voice that is rarely heard.’ Saima Mir This is the story of a child raised in Canada by parents who embraced a puritanical version of Islam to shield them from racism. The author explores the joys and sorrows of growing up in a fundamentalist Muslim household, wedding grand historical narratives of colonialism and migration to the small intimate heartbreaks of modern life. In revisiting the beliefs and ideals she was raised with, Chaudhry invites us to reimagine our ideas of self and family, state and citizenship, love and loss.

First Printed in 2011 2015 edition. Nehemiah 8:1-19; Psalm 91:1 This little book is a collection of messages on Discipleship Training in Holy Ghost School recorded at Right hand of the LORD Fellowship, Egbe- Lagos, Nigeria. It happened that I was discipled by two ministers of God: Rev. Joses Hizkiah of Unfailing Life Ministries and Prophet Lambert Eze Okafor of LaFAMCALL (End-Time) Ministries. After this, I forgot about the training and continued in my former method of ministration as I could not pick up the teaching immediately. It was at this juncture of stalemate or deadlock that the LORD quickened me one day to start on the teaching on Holy Ghost Discipleship by faith that the inspiration came to start putting down in writing as the LORD started to help me along. After a considerable number of lessons, the directive came from the LORD to compile the messages into a leaflet for discipling members of the fellowship.

God and the World of Signs

The colour in question must be embodied in order to function as a sign, but it is not the embodiment as such that is ... “inmost essence and constitution” as exactly the “material” of a possible utterance of God (cf. quotation above).

Drawing on the philosophy of C. S. Peirce, Robinson develops a ‘semiotic model’ of the Trinity and proposes a new theology of nature according to which the evolving cosmos may be understood as bearing ‘vestiges of the Trinity in creation’.
