But it’s not coming from Mary, as she’s quickly dubbed. She seems to have taken a vow of silence. So it’s up to the citizens of Bellingham to make their own miracles—or at least their own myths.

An attempt has been made by the author to write in simple, easy to read, easy to understand language, so that every child (from age seven), youth, and adult, will enjoy as well as learn, and be ministered to through the pages of the book. There is an important counsel for parents and guardians, on how to help their wards, and also, advise to the youths on how to keep themselves, and be counted amongst the remnant that God is depending on to remain preserved according to His divine plan.
Sinmisola Ogúnyinka, an extraordinary woman with an extraordinary talent to address topical issues is at it again this time with THE DEVIL LIED. This book is incisive and apt. She has discussed the lie of the devil as it relates to sex from a very practical perspective. To my mind, this book cuts across all age brackets in the main. This book makes an interesting reading and a wonderful piece of write-up to ponder on. She is a woman wonderfully used by God to minister to her generation.
