Two books on Muslim Fundamentalism Inaugurated

By Orthodoxawit Ethiopiyawit


Inauguration of two books on Muslim Fundamentalism

(Addis Ababa): Ethiopian writers and scholars of different time and era have wrote about the extremist Islamic movement, its consequences and what the true belief of the doctrine itself is –
1. Anqetse Amin (አንቀጸ አሚን) by the 16th century Yemeni born Muslim convert who later became Echege of Debre Libanos Aba Enbaqom, 2. Lemene aleselemkum(ለምን አልሰለምኩም)by the late Alemayehu Moges and
3.yehaimanot mechahchal be Ethiopia alene (የሃይማኖት መቻቻል በኢትዮጵያ አለን?) by His Grace Abune Samuel.
And now…
4. "Muslim Fundamemtalism in Ethiopia (አክራሪ እስልምና በኢትዮጵያ)" by Ephrem Eshete and
5. "Islam Encounters Christ (ከአክራሪ እስልምና ወደ ክርስትና)" by Dn Daniel Kibret.

Ephrem's book presents the historical crossing of Islam and its followers in Ethiopia from the past till the present time. It explicates the aspiration of fundamental extremism and its evolving strategies, to conquer, along centuries. The book is well structured and very intellectual which makes it well standardized research book. In short words it marks a new observation in the history of our time. And in my on belief it is a matter that should be incorporated in all the teachings of the Church, Sunday school curriculum or even theological studies.It is a must own and must read book of our time.

It was inaugurated on November 15 of 2008 at Debre Selam Kedist Mariam Church in
DC,USA. It was viewed by more that 60 audiences. Nibure Ed Gebrehiwot Melise,
Memher Berhanu Gobena, Kesis Dr. Amare Kassaye and Dr Aklilu Habte were among the
honorable guests. During the program it was suggested that the book should get
translated to Oromeffa, the necessary preparation is being performed to achieve this
with in the next year. The book is available in Mahibere Kidusan stores and other private book stores. You can also drop a comment and read what others say about the book at Blog: http://radicalislaminethiopia.blogspot.com/

The other new book to the list "Islam Encounters Christ (ከአክራሪ እስልምና ወደ ክርስትና)" by Dn Daniel Kibret. This auto biography of the remarkable life of a Nahid Mohammad, a Christian convert from Muslim, depicts about the scandal and suffering that she faces after her call from our Lord Jesus Christ. In her earlier life Nahid was a cruel and vicious person to any Christian around her. After our Saviour revealed to her just like he did to Seoul. She was reborn in Jesus Christ, there after she was chased and hunted by government executives but God has been with and protected her just like He did for the prophet Jeremiah. It is great story of a brave Christian woman in whose life we see the ever ending love and protection of God. It is an inspiration and living proof to all Christians that the God they believe is merciful; he is the resurrection and the life. It was inaugurated on December 13 of 2008 at Jerusalem Hotel in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. There were more than 80 people for the occasion. Among which his Grace Abune Gabriel and Abune Deyoskoros,MelakeSelam Abba Gebre Selassie,Abba Tewodros, Abba NahuSenai and the much-loved Memeher yenata Eshetu where present, university professors and officials of Mahibere Kidusan as Dn Berhanu Admasu, chief editor of Hamer Magazine and others were also present. During the program it was suggested to prepare the book in audio form since the story has such a magnificant narrative nature which will lift the heart and soul when heard.
The book is available in any Mahibere Kidusan stores and other private spiritual book
stores.
