Killing Lions

On 10/25 'Yomi 'Segun Stephen wrote: In ancient Kenya, a young Masai man has to kill a lion as a rite of passage into manhood. That is the tradition.

On 7/19 'Yomi 'Segun Stephen wrote: Bulky study bibles and commentaries have long been known as the preserve of those who wants to be bible teachers, pastors, youth leaders, etc. The way these books are structure and written favours the academic-brained but a chore for those who love light reading.

Without rambling or fancy words, it shows the ... Book Review: George Washington Carver

The Expanded Bible

On 4/10 'Yomi 'Segun Stephen wrote: I used to love the Amplified Bible because of its unique feature of expanding on word meanings, thus making comprehension easy and reading enjoyable.
