AUTHOR Nkanu Emori, to many troubled minds, may pass for an Iconoclast of some sort, attacking contemporary religious practices he sees as mistaken or unwise. But from whatever perspective this new millennium thinker is viewed, he is a social crusader, an uncompromising critic, a religious observer, a champion of a new world order, a civil rights activist, a literary icon and, above all, a gifted chronicler of the affairs of contemporary times for posterity. With a stance, as unbiased, dispassionate and vantage as nature itself, Emori expresses himself without fear or favour in this little but explosive book. The scholar beams his searchlight on the rave of the moment - the Man of God. He lunches a critique at his trendy attitude to social change, political stability, respect for laws and dispensation of justice by the authorities of his time. Emori attempts a juxtaposition of the current Man of God with his ancient counterpart, whose message was delivered with fire. And he concludes that the current Man has not done enough to justify the anointing, privileges, powers, status and position, which the society, the church and the Heavens have entrusted to him. Emori, therefore, calls for self -examination by the current Man for an effective redirection of the polity through the power in the Word. ABOUT THE BOOK The Man of God:His Quest For Just Laws And True Justice though a critique, is an invitation to participate in legal and judicial reforms by the Man of God, partnership with the Executive and Legislative Arms of Government in legal frameworks for effective nation-building, religious empowerment, ecclesiastical revolution, productive sermons and the zeal for a refreshing propagation of the Word. The Message in this book may be disturbing to the false man on the pulpit but it stands for the truth and to vilify those who stand against the truth.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Nkanu Emori found himself turning a master essayist while battling life as a Street Lawyer in his very early days in legal practice when he did cheap dog-bite cases for carpenters, bricklayers, mechanics, destitutes, taxi drivers, tailors, masons, vendors, market women, grave diggers, shoe cobblers, hawkers, pimps, gangsters, alcoholics, drug peddlers and other members of the lowest rung of the social strata down the slummy parts of the riverine city of Calabar, Nigeria. Emori had to wake up from his observer status to relate his experience in writing on a daily basis. He emerges philosophical, ethical and moral but very objective, clinical and resolute. Incidentally, Emori just wants to make a statement and he ends up making a long one, culminating Motivational Essays for Mankind (Vol. 1). In the process, he leaves no stone unturned. He delves into every aspect of human life and existence. Emori, the creative dragnet, comes up big in this collection of thirty essays, with a tremendous wealth of experience, gathered over time. The literary play maker, who finds himself joggling with semantics, diction and oratorical skills, peculiar to his own style of writing, tries to create some truisms with his essays. He goes diverse, wide, sundry and total but carefully focused on the issues raised in his essays while, at the same time, trying to maximize the ideas called his, for the consumption of mankind. ABOUT THE BOOK: Motivational Essays for Mankind (Vol. 1) is the summation of Emori’s attempts over the years to reach out to his fellow humans, for a discourse on how to install a new social order. The literary craftsman, who churns out books like a magician, is a talented creative writer of no mean repute. He is the author of many fast-selling books, including the everyday readers’ delight, Messages from the Tunnels (Vol. 1). Meanwhile, Motivational Essays for Mankind (Vol. 2) is in the offing, steaming hot for release. Watch out.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR Nkanu Emori, the master essayist of contemporary times, in this critically-acclaimed collection, emerges with four distinctive voices - protest, love, praise and mourning - that beat the imagination of his critics. Quintessential of the existential thinker that he is, Emori mirrors man and society in his essays and comes out with a verdict that shows that much work still needs to be done by these two entities for a true social order to be inaugurated. The Society Writer of international repute, whose image has been on the looming scale in the world essayists circuit, disagrees with a number of conventional and orthodox societal practices and idiosyncrasies of man, which have pervaded his time and circumstances. Inspired by the desire for social change and a new world order, with the essay as an instrument of that rejuvenation and engineering, as championed and propounded by his idols of ancient and medieval times and his spiritual and ideological mentors in the essay genre such as Dandemis, Bacon, Emerson, Addison and many others, Emori gathers and collates his opinions in this volume with the mastery, artistry and wizardry of the modern day sage that he is fast morphing into, with gradual and calculated finesse. ABOUT THE BOOK: Messages from the Tunnels (Vol. 1) is a text set to change the mindset of not just many but a multitude, with its ravaging critical essence, smooth sailing diction, distinctive literary connection and rich language power exhibited by the ess
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Nkanu Emori, the familiar four-voiced master essayist, is out again with this new offering. Never ever missing his mark, he beams his searchlight on all facets of society, with humanity at the centre of the desired deal for a new way. The talismanic writer makes foray into all areas, including even sensitive ones that the most fearless writers will dread to probe. He then challenges every reasonable-thinking mind to flow along with the tide or against the tempest, as the discourse for a saner society is underway. In these practically well-knitted essays, Emori takes two stands, one as an observer and the other as a participant. In one breath, he detaches himself from society to be able to paint the picture of his subjects for quick and vivid appraisal by his readers. And in yet another, he involves himself in the unfolding drama he is addressing, to give the same readers a good appreciation and evaluation of the issues under knocks. ABOUT THE BOOK: Messages from the Tunnels (Vol. 2) is a succinctly packaged piece, endowed with the power and wit to blow any mind away on contemporary societal matters, begging for discourse at this critical moment of our existence, when the basic preoccupation of everyman is his unconscionable pursuit of material wealth, political power, economic security, social influence and spiritual relevance.
AUTHOR: Nkanu Emori rose from the gutters, debris and rubbles of a ghetto life in the less-fancied and shanty district of Mbukpa downtown Calabar to don the toga of a Master Essayist. In knitting his essays and making them palatable for human consumption, Emori positions himself strategically on the tentacles of experiences, encountered and won in the inferior neighbourhood notoriously known for its low methods of survival. Emori found himself mixed up with the rigours of daily life, as he got weighed down with an age-long search for self-emancipation through intellectual and scholarly consummation hence this second volume of essays. After a running battle with the writer’s genius that lasted a whole decade, Emori emerged fulfilled and accomplished in literary consciousness with this collection of another 30 essays dubbed Motivational Essays for Mankind (Volume 2) in which he tackles every issue of life in considerable totality. Emori the literary cornerstone once rejected by the publishing masons and builders, now wields the status of the pillar upon which the edifice of non-fiction writing rests.
