The book has been written with three objectives in mind:
• To provide a permanent record of what actually happened as a body of evidence arguing against military dictatorship in Nigeria, the enthronement of mediocrity in positions of authority and the culture of impunity in our national life;
• To demonstrate the power and faithfulness of God in the life of whoever commits himself or herself to Him; and
• To enlighten, comfort, encourage and strengthen Christians who may be passing through some form of trial.
In the Forward to the book, the Anglican Bishop of Owerri, the Rt. Rev. Cyril C. Okorocha, writes:
Help from above may seem delayed, but it is never denied to a faithful child of a loving, Heavenly Father, Who is also the Lord God Almighty! This is the message of this book.
