The Student Christian Organization of Malawi (SCOM) has released two books in honour of its founder, the Late Reverend Dr. Franklin Chunga who died in September 2010.
The books have two major audiences: the youths (secondary and university) and the grown-up adults (single, married and working).
The two books, “Running the Race” and “Before You Awaken Love” have been inspiringly and carefully written to tackle the realities that Christians in these two categories face.
About 50 years since its formation, SCOM is humbled by the immeasurable impact that its work continues to make on the youths of Malawi in particular and the various people in the broader society, according to Felix Lombe and Emmanuel Thuwala, Project Coordinators for the Production of the Books.
Produced by its support arm, SCOM-Associates Fellowship (SCOMAF), the two books are meant to accord a meaningful “moment of silence” to the Late Rev. Dr. Chunga…on his well-carried mission that he accomplished said Lombe and Thuwala.
“By obeying the call of the Lord, the Late Chunga successfully facilitated the formation of the largest student movement in Malawi – SCOM – which has impacted on the lives of many people today serving in the various spheres in this country and beyond,” reads part of press statement.
“Running the Race” contains life-inspiring and challenging chapters including: Bereavement: is God Really in Control?; Singleness: the Divine Tease? Backsliding and Christian Character; Christian Wealth and Commitment; The Snare of Corruption: A Non-Christian Phenomenon?
“Before You Awaken Love” on the other hand is a richly compiled master-piece that has been written to stifle the propagation of ignorance and misconstruing of truths on many areas that today’syouths struggle in. Some of the chapters include: Masturbation: An Escape Valve? Sexual Purity in a Dirty World; The Question of Identity and many more.
Printed by Likuni Press and Karora Printers, the books are available in major books and Puma Filling Station Shops.
