Description

A New Look^t Old Truths
Looks creatively at some of our traditionally held beliefs and assumptions as well as expressions and words that we constantly use. It provokes thinking on such words and facts that are often taken for granted. The approach is popular and with a touch of humour.
The themes are predominantly, but not exclusively, religious. It offers enriching, inspirational and at the same time light reading. The essays are short, contextualised and non-academic in style.
“The author provides a fresh look at old truths with x-ray vision and laser sharp wit.- He minces no words to drive home the naked truth about our proper ways of being and doing” (C. M. Paul sdb- President: Signis- India, former Editor: The Herald, Kolkata).
Fr. Paul Vadakumpadan sdb teaches Missiology at Sacred Heart Theological College, Shillong. He is the author of Evangelisation Today (Shillong 1989) and Editor of Mission Today (formerly Indian Missiological Review).
