(At 3.00pm at the GA Presbytery Auditorium (Jubilee House), Osu Kuku Hills, Accra, on Friday, 1 December, 2017).
Rev Suma Jehu-Appiah, an informed insider in relation to the Ghanaian religious landscape, has written a novel praised for its documentary force in the media. The book, titled Broken Teeth, exposes some of the grave failings and even heinous crimes that are perpetuated by some religious leaders, especially leaders of those churches lacking corporate or moral word-based checks on the flesh. Our country is virtually besieged by con prophets.
He invites you to the book launch in Accra and asks for your prayers and support.
At the event, he hopes an alliance can be set up to create a future discussion forum to help stem the tide of moral decay threatening to corrupt the most sensitive institution in our nation, that is, the Christian religious order.
Love is the greatest Christian ethic but these churches and their leaders appear to live for themselves, feeding on the gullibility or the vulnerability of the public.
Indeed, a country is ‘toothless’ when her so called spiritualists can get away with so much.
He says in the book, therefore, that the government can and must regulate the activities of those churches that run adverts promising the unrealistic and thereby crushing the future of the youth into nothingness.
Published by Heritage Publications, the book already has had good reception by some newspapers, some church leaders, theologians and students of theology.
Rev Suma holds a degree in Film and Media from Birkbeck College (University of London) and Master of Arts in Ministry from Trinity Theological Seminary, Legon. He holds also a Diploma in Journalism and Newswriting from the London School of Journalism. He is currently pursuing a PhD programme in Theology at the South African Theological Seminary.
