The deepest and most significant aspect of the heritage of any nation lies in her people. A people’s dignity, worth and value can be measured by their human resources. More important than mineral wealth, more significant than financial capital and of more value than land and property, are the leaders of thought and character, that a communal or social group can lay claim to. Towering above the tallest buildings, reaching deeper than the roots of ancient trees, are society’s icons, doyens of a people’s life and culture. Often unrecognized in their lifetime, sometimes vilified or else silenced by political forces, these persons represent a people’s legacy and gift to humankind. Such was Dr. Ephraim Amu, native of Peki Avetile, son of West Africa’s “Gold Coast”, scholar, teacher, musician, ethicist, and preacher. In this book, Prof. Laryea has by careful and detailed research, rendered an invaluable service to posterity in unearthing and making available the life, works and public speeches of Dr Ephraim Amu. Thoughtfully selecting over sixty of Amu’s sermons spanning a period of 50 years (1937 - 1986), Laryea enables us to more deeply enter the inner thoughts and expressions of one of Ghana’s most illustrious sons, thus allowing us into the veritable engine room of the composer of Ghana’s national song, “Yân ara asase ni”, crafted by Amu in 1929. In doing so he has also opened up and thrown light upon very significant periods in the nation’s history.

Die Selbstbetrachtungen des römischen Kaisers Mark Aurel sind die letzte bedeutende Hinterlassenschaft aus der philosophischen Schule der jüngeren Stoa. Maßgebliche Richtschnur für das eigene Denken und Handeln waren ihm die Einordnung in und die Übereinstimmung mit der „Allnatur“. Vernunftleitung und Gemeinwohlorientierung gehören zu den in zahlreichen Wendungen variierten Konstanten der Selbstbetrachtungen, zu denen Mark Aurel auch die Rückwirkungen seines Amtes auf die eigene Person antrieben: „Verkaisere nicht!“

Published in 1952, Paul Tillich’s (1886–1965) seminal work The Courage to Be is among his most important writings, and it established his reputation outside of academic theology. In this book, he summarized in concise form the core themes of his overall theology, reformulating the notion of faith as “the courage to be” while also furnishing a re-interpretation of modern society.
