Sabbatical book on Sudan published
The publication of a new book arising from a sabbatical taken at Ridley Hall has just been announced, hailed as ground-breaking.
The Rt Revd Anthony Poggo, bishop of Kajo-Keji in South Sudan, joined the Ridley communicity during the Lent Term of 2013 for his sabbatical leave to work on the project, a commentary on Nehemiah. The book, published by Millepede Books, is entitled Come Let us Rebuild: Lessons from Nehemiah.
The book focuses on the parallels between the remnant of Israel and his own context in South Sudan, especially in relationship to pressing social and political issues. "Anthony Poggo’s new book", writes the Revd Dr Andy Wheeler, "enlarges and enriches the resources available to South Sudan’s people as they seek to build a new nation in justice and freedom."
Bishop Anthony’s visit is part of Ridley’s larger vision to be a place of rootedness, renewal, and reciprocity for the whole Anglican Communion. His sabbatical was funded in part by Ridley’s Overseas Bursaries Fund. Click here to support the work of the Fund.
