This book exposes the overwhelming arrays of challenges that Christians face in the 21st century Nigeria. The purpose of this book is to consider these challenges and suggest means of meeting them. In this book, Christians are charged with living in such a manner as to contribute to the health and strength of their society. The book examines the extent to which the family depends upon the Church and its ministry for guidance and support in creating a healthy and moral atmosphere in the home. This book explains how the theological training of Pastors plays a significant role in society. Together, families and Pastors, leaders from every facet of life, could be joined together in the mission to create a healthy society. The book sees religious violence in Nigeria with emphasis on conflict resolution. The church has a responsibility to lead the nation in presenting peaceful resolutions to all forms of violence, whether in the home, the community, or nationally. Following closely on the issue of religious violence, is that of corruption at all levels, from personal to political. Lastly, the physical health of the individual and community is of vital interest to all. This book considers and examines the role of the Christian in Contemporary Nigerian Society with a view to taking responsibility in meeting the challenges and contributing to the solutions. This book reminds the Christian that he or she is not alone; he or she is but one part in the overall picture of a nation struggling to take its place in the 21st century world.
