The Trinity of Sin

£13.99
You cannot kill a tree by cutting off its branches; you need to dig down and cut off its roots. In this book, Professor Yusufu Turaki uses the Holy Scriptures as spade and axe as he digs down to examine the roots of sin.

Endorsements

Professor Yusufu Turaki helps us to understand how sin affects our relationships with ourselves, with God and with others. More than that, he gives us guidelines for dealing with sin in our lives and in our communities. I commend this book for personal reading and for academic study.
