Perseverance is the key to success
Covington, GA (PRWEB) October 12, 2016
Within the pages of Bethel Clifford Hushie-Osabutey’s new book, Withered Into Life – An Autobiography of Rev. Dr. Isaac D. Hushie Osabutey-Aguedze, ($15.49, paperback, 9781498445436) readers will be mesmerized by the story of an African statesman and scholar who overtly and boldly took on the position to teach the world that Christian theology is drawn from ancient African religion, practices and philosophy. His message, considered too revolutionary in 1932 by Western Theologians, is one that must be told.
Withered Into Life is no ordinary account. It is a compilation of the hand written and oral accounts by the author’s father, the Reverend Dr. Isaac D. Hushie Osabutey-Aguedze. Prior to his death in 1977, he had charged his son Bethel with the responsibility of putting together and having this book published. It is the story of a self made man who defied all the odds against him right from his conception in the womb for 20 months – rose up to become a global figure who believed in the moral good as the higher good.
The events recorded in this book carries readers into an epoch as far back as early nineteenth century, a period when the horrible institution of slave trade and slavery along the African Coastline had not yet been declared illegal let alone an obsolete concept. The story of Rev. Dr. Isaac D. Hushie Osabutey-Aguedze’s success and tremendous life contributions will have the reader in awe. His character and being is clearly portrayed in this book through his many important projects, public transactions and numerous achievements. His story proves that life is a progressive ladder of success to be continuously climbed until one is lost in oblivion.
“The greatness of an individual is not determined by aristocratic heritage nor by royal birth, but by the shear determination and the will to succeed,” states the author. “Perseverance is the key to success.”
Reverend Dr. Isaac D. Hushie Osabutey-Aguedze walked away from Fame and Fortune to devote his life to the service of God and humanity. He was the patriot who influenced the Late Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, first President of the Republic of Ghana, to replace the Colonial name of Gold Coast with Ghana. In conformity with changing the name Gold Coast to Ghana, he renamed the college Gold Coast Peoples College of which he was the founder and principal Ghanata Secondary School. He was the first recipient of a gold medal awarded to any student of African origin by the Johnson C. Smith University in Charlotte, North Carolina. He received this award for his proficiency in the Hebrew language and Hebrew studies. He was also the recipient of a Key to the Nation of Israel awarded in Tel-Aviv in 1960, and upon whom the honorary citizenship of the Hebrew nation was conferred. He was a guest of the Holly Father the Pope at the Vatican in Rome. He was a leading advocate and a voice that cried out loud for the emancipation of the African Continent from European dominance.
