Written by a Christian missionary, John Idoko, the book, “Ishmael in the Presence of His Brethren”, was released shortly after her abduction, and was dedicated to Leah Sharibu.
The dedication reads: “To Leah Sharibu, the lone Christian girl among the Dapchi girls kidnapped by Boko Haram…. This book is a garland to adorn her neck for taking a bold stand for Christ Jesus as a ‘lamb in the midst of wolves.'”
Ishmael in the Presence of His Brethren, according to Idoko deals with three major points.
▪ The genesis of everything is in Genesis. What did God say about Ishmael in the beginning? How are those things playing out today?
▪ Who did God refer to as Ishmael’s brethren? And what was in God’s mind when He strategically located Ishmael in their presence?
▪ How is Ishmael living out his life in the presence of his brethren today? And how does God expect his brethren to respond biblically?
“These and much more are mysteries unravelled in this book,” Idoko adding that the book can be sourced at firstname.lastname@example.org
