"A Regeneration of the Pre-Christian Spiritual Worldviews and Religious Practices of the Holy Isles." This book is very different from anything Robin Artisson has written so far, for a very special reason: it is written in the tone of a father to his children. This book is a gift for his children, full of things he would want them to know and things he would want to tell them, to help them through their lives. The book is closer, more intimate, and warmer than most of his work. But it includes massive amounts of material regarding native British Isles (Britain and Ireland) traditional Paganism and spiritual ecology, and native Gods and Goddesses. Tons of scholarly backing and personal inspiration, as well as a wide and complete selection of traditional Pagan philosophical "points of guidance" are offered, as a father would want to offer his most beloved offspring. A full working reconstruction of the pre-Christian polytheistic religious perspectives and practices of Pagan Britain and Ireland is "taught" in its pages, like a guidebook and a long letter/narrative being sent from father to children. There is a long occult tradition of such exchanges. All are invited to listen in on a man telling the most important things he can tell his children, and hoping that they remember these things when he is gone and they have children of their own. A very personal project, but one he has wanted to create and write for years, and it deals with years worth of material he has collected.

These poems came out of the love Dr. Yadusky has for his wife, Margaret, and his children. The will to create and the will to love are one. Poems make love visible, and by doing so they uplift and heal, because in the presence of love everything is healed. Poetry at its essence depicts a spiritual world, because the mind seeks truth, the heart seeks love, and the spirit seeks goodness and God. Poems awaken something in the reader's heart that is beyond knowledge. We can define poetic creation in the same way that we define art itself, namely, spirit expressed into matter. Poets say tangibly what they feel intangibly to give finite form to the infinite. When Dr. Yadusky depicts this creative spirit of love, he shows us the face of God.

The Succession Crisis in Nigeria is one of the most important books you will ever read on generational succession planning. It zeroes in on Nigeria and identifies the failure in establishing generational succession planning as one of the most critical problems facing fathers, business leaders, corporate leaders, community leaders, government leaders and church leaders in the country. It also explains the benefits of raising successors with the right kind of values and why a generational perspective is vital when considering succession planning. For many Nigerians who have been alive since before the nation’s independence in 1960, the half century between then and now may truly be called ‘The Era of the Decline of Institutions’. It is difficult to find one important institution in the country that has not lost a discernible part of its quality and value in the period. Equally, it is becoming impossible to find a community anywhere in Nigeria in which societal values have survived undamaged. Indeed, Wale Adefarasin is convinced that “the core of our national malaise in Nigeria is a catastrophic loss of values.” From this, we may be tempted to draw the simple conclusion, either that past generations of Nigerians have not added much value to their country, or, at least, that they have not – in the words of Scripture – been able to bear “fruit that will last.” [John 15:16] Yet we know that we would be hugely mistaken to come to such a conclusion. We are able to recall the names of many Nigerians of excellence who have passed through our land, people who qualify to be described as people of excellence precisely because they brought great glory to their country on account of the nobility and loftiness of their value contribution both at home and internationally. This book reflects the agitation in the mind of the author as he sees that much of that excellent quality has withered away, leaving behind a society that now looks a shadow of itself. We often pray for our friends that their “shadow may never grow less”; but as the substance of the Nigerian persona has diminished, so has its ‘shadow’ suffered progressive diminution! It has been said that, “leaders are tenants of time and context”. If previous generations added good value in their own time, can we then justifiably lay the blame at the door of their successor generations for failing to maintain and improve that which they inherited? Wale Adefarasin’s thesis is that our real problem is that we have been very poor at managing succession from one generation to the next, not just in terms of passing on responsibility, but particularly in effectively transferring values and standards across generations. Today, businesses have come to acknowledge the wisdom of managing succession, not only between today’s job-holder and his immediate successor, but at multiple levels, as deep into the organisation as is practicable. Current events and trends suggest that we have, in fact, a crisis of succession in Nigeria. Pastor Wale Adefarasin has shown much courage and determination in sharing his thoughts and concerns at a time like this. This is completely understandable when we remember the eminence of his pedigree as well as the consistency with which he has pursued his chosen calling and responsibility for capacity building as a pastor. He is a successful practitioner who continues to demonstrate the certainty of achievement in anything to which we truly give our heart. He reminds one constantly that Apostle Paul did not over-state his injunction – “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.” [Colossians 3:23] These attributes confirm the certainty that those who read this book will find much of real benefit in doing so, and thereby, come closer to the possibility that, indeed, we may all leave this nation, Nigeria, in a better state than that in which we found her. - Dr. Christopher Kolade, CON.
