Entertainment- Abiara’s biography comes in Yoruba language



A new book has shed some light on the missionary life of the founder of the Christ Apostolic Church, Agbala Itura, Pastor Samuel Abiara.

The book is authored by Doyin Abegunde and published by Arisilejoye Publishers in the Yoruba Language. It is titled ‘Apositeli Alaafia: Itan Wolii S. K. Abiara’.

Explaining why the book is written in Yoruba, the author says he wanted to give the grassroots followers of the cleric an opportunity to know more about him.

The book comes in three major parts, with the first focusing on Abiara’s early life; the second on his getting enlisted into the Army of God and the last capturing his exploits and the progress he has continued to make, including the establishment of the Christ International Divinity College in his hometown, Erimo, Ilesa, Osun State.

One of the main things the book reveals about Abiara is the struggles that he went through before he released himself to God as a missionary. This is established in the third chapter where the evangelist recalls a soul-stirring sermon he heard at Ijo Aposteli Kristi (C.A.C) in Ibadan in 1963.

 Although his family used to attend the Roman Catholic Church, the sermon, titled Working for God, delivered by Prophet Ekundayo, touched Abiara’s soul in a significant way and he began to question his own choices in life. His reflection on the message indicated that he needed to do something for God. But other thoughts and choices delayed this, thus causing more troubles for his mind. According to Abiara, God appeared to him twice in his dreams, asking him to come to the vineyard, before he finally picked up the baton.

Beyond putting in perspective the evangelist’s story, Abegunde also gives several associates of the pastor an opportunity to pay tributes to him. Among them is the king of Erinmo, Oba Samuel Taiwo Adeniyi, who describes Abiara as a source of joy and pride for the town. The monarch particularly commends him for establishing the college in Erinmo.

Others who paid tributes to Abiara include his brother; Chief Elizabeth Oluwafisayo; a friend, Mr. Jacob Adetona; a fellow missionary, Mr. Amos Adegoke and one of the children of the subject, Pastor Israel Abiara, who notes that his father is a man of immense faith and prayers.
