The chief of the people is Iswa. Iswa survives the great wars and snares of the battleground, but he is yet to face the greatest battle of his life. Idolized by every young boy in the village, Iswa has now made himself a great ferocious and relentless enemy – the king of all the Iruba chiefdoms – Ngo. Ngo is the master of all mischief and a miscreant. His grip on the throne of Iruba is wearing out the patience of the people. Iruba is under siege by Ngo’s strange army – men likened to blood-thirsty ghosts – but nothing will stop the women of Iruba from having a good laugh at them. The women are daring. They won’t bow down to any man’s chest thumping, but they praise Iswa endlessly, much to Ngo’s annoyance.
Chronicles of Iruba is a mesmerising, stay-up-all-night and tell-all-your-friends-about-it story; an old-fashioned tale of intrigue, survival and bold machinations of destiny. The book leaves the lofts of your mind wondering how far is too far and how deep is the depth of the looming darkness in a man’s heart.

Humble, dramatic tales of life, love and laughter are narrated here in Primah's Jesus story. While many would walk on eggshells around their idea of a treacherous punishment-giving, merit-awarding, distant God, Primah shows us His unconditional love, grace, intimacy, and desire to be in a relationship with us, despite our not so-divine human nature. Primah shares her Jesus experience with such hilarious, relatable stories! This book will take you along Primah's Jesus journey, from moments of mindless yet earnest religion even as a child, to the place where she encountered His grace. The book demonstrates how God's grace sets us free to walk in love with God without fear. Primah took down the proverbial scoreboard that she tried to earn credits with by 'good behavior' and other conventional religious what-nots, and replaced it with Christ and everything that came with what He did for us on the cross. If you find yourself struggling to be what you think God wants you to be, and it feels like a never-ending uphill climb then Primah's humorous Jesus story is just what you need.
