What constitutes the teachings of Jesus Christ are parables, miracles, and sermons, etc., plotted in the familiar physical, social, religious, and economic environments of the people He was addressing. If Christ were to physically give sermons, perform miracles, and tell parables in our contemporary world, He would most likely derive and plot quite a number of them in the context of our traffic environment. Short or long distances, we use the road more than ever before. This means any teaching plotted in the traffic environment concerns virtually everyone.
Lessons from the Road is a book in its own class and style, trying to capture the "persistent voice" of God in traffic. It takes a starting point from the traffic setting, illustrates and then builds from there to highlight how our daily traffic exposure is an opportunity to understand God's ways. You don't have to be an avowed Christian to benefit from this book.
Ogweno holds a Bachelor of Education degree (Moi University- Kenya) and M.Phil. degree in mass communication and media studies (University of Bergen-Norway). He was initially complacent with the religious thoughts he inherited from his environment but later realised that religion doesn't save, Jesus does. He accepted Christ as Lord and Saviour in 1989. Since then he has pursued the heart of Christ with a passion. Before going abroad, Ogweno was actively involved in student evangelism in Kenya. He resides in Norway, where he has been a member of the leadership committee of an international students' fellowship (1993-2004). His background as a trained teacher and "communicationist" makes him an authentic writer, speaker, and teacher of the Word of God. He is married to Laura Caroline and they have two sons, Victor and Jim-Jif, and a daughter, Baraka. Find out more about the ministry he is engaged in at: www.cilmin.com
