The manuscript was received at a time when I desperately needed some encouragement in this respect. The four principles recommended to make rejoicing in the LORD always practicable challenged my perception of my circumstances. Reverend Dr. Michael Ojewale...has drawn from biblical examples and personal experiences to underscore each of these principles. I have been blessed reading this book. I recommend it to you. -Reverend Dr. Olu Adams, PhD Curate, St. Peters Church, Glenfield, Leicester, UK Christianity is not hard, even if that goes against the experience of many. It is no doubt easier said than done but not impossible, if properly understood. The Savior Himself said His yoke is easy and His burden is light. Dr. Ojewale shows us how to discover the truth of this claim, so we may live in and through the strength of CHRIST, and constantly celebrate the goodness of God Almighty. -Nimi Wariboko, MBA, MDiv Senior Pastor, The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Brooklyn, NY Author of 100 Great Bible Mysteries: Digging Deep for Revelation Knowledge A delightful, convicting, encouraging read! Michael focuses the hurting heart upon God and then teaches the hurting heart how to bring God into the heart of the problem. -Howard A. Eyrich, ThM, DMin Associate Pastor, Briarwood Presbyterian Church Biblical Counseling Professor Even a Caged Bird Sings! is a must-read for any serious Christian. The [book] is a ray of hope and comfort meticulously researched, carefully arranged, inspiringly written and powerfully presented by an author who has wrestled long and hardwith the subject matter. This work is definitely a shot of faith in the arms of those who find it extremely difficult to sing the Lords name in a strange land (Psalm 137:4). Dr. Ojewale writes with theological brilliance, clarity and personal conviction that makes this an easy read for the ordained and the laity. May those who pick up [this book] read, mark, learn and inwardly digest the same. -Reverend Dr. Glenworth D. Miles, DMin, MDiv Rector, St. Georges Episcopalian Church, Brooklyn, NY There are no short cuts and quick fixes in life because many of our problems are ingrained in who we are, and deeply rooted beneath the surface of our personalities. Yet this book shows us a practical and biblical approach to reduce the worry habit, manage our stress levels, rethink a problem, refocus our goals, revisit our dreams, maximize our potentials, enhance our self-image, and reclaim our joy of the Lord. However, Even a Caged Bird Sings! is not a book written by an expert who has got it all figured out and put together in his own life, but, rather, by a veteran whos been battered and bruised in lifes battles, yet also divinely preserved and blessed, and who keeps learning to be human than performing. Dr. Michael Ojewale is the author of several challenging and biblically-oriented books-books that encourage and uplift. Here is a helpful and resourceful book for personal edification, discipleship class, study group, youth ministry, counseling, and mentoring programs.
