Description

This book opens a window into the lives and extraordinary witness of a Christian couple whose faithful life of service has earned them the moniker of Ethiopia’s Bonhoeffer. Part One introduces the reader to the extant writings of Gudina Tumsa. Part Two is a highly personal account of Gudina and Tsehay’s life, witness, and sufferings. The collection concludes with an essay by Samuel Yonas Deressa on the impact of Gudina’s vision. Gudina lives on in the many Ethiopian Christians who continue to be inspired by his life and witness.
