Seventy-two percent of South Sudan’s population is under thirty years of age. It is this generation that must create a new South Sudanese identity that is inclusive of all its nationalities. In The Power of Creative Reasoning, author Lual A. Deng shows how the ideas and concepts touted by Dr. John Garang could facilitate the advancement of the ideals of freedom, liberty, and human dignity.
The Power of Creative Reasoning provides an insider’s perspective on Garang, a visionary leader who used a combination of strategic thinking and a path-goal approach to resolve complex societal problems. Deng has coined the term “Garangism” as the pursuit of Sudanese commonality with conviction, courage, consistency, and creativity to end all forms of marginalization.
Deng shows how Garang employed symbolic logic in the form of Venn Diagrams to articulate the vision of New Sudan and presents ten power-ful ideas to help the Sudanese as they are facing serious challenges of leadership, democratic governance, sustained peace, economic growth, poverty, and corruption. The Power of Creative Reasoning communicates that the leadership of the new Sudan can manage these challenges by internalizing Garang’s ideas.

“Through this book, one understands incredible personal and group experiences that would have gone unnoticed. I have never found a book that encompasses the past and the present like Christian Faith among the Jieeng,” Adit Abit, Vancouver, Canada.
In Christian Faith among the Jieeng, Rev. Nathaniel Athian Deng Mayen provides an insider's perspective on the development of Christian faith among the Jieeng (Dinka). Based on his teaching and clergy experiences and observations, Rev. Athian discusses the stages of faith, the shift in values and beliefs, and the cultural and religious experiences of Jieeng believers in the Episcopal Diocese of Bor. The author maintains that the shift in Jieeng cultural values and the subsequent conversion to Christianity are a result of the believers' experiences and encounters with God. God mysteriously reveals Himself to the animist believers and wins their hearts through miracles. Thus, the miracles reveal the powerlessness of the animist deities (jak) whom the believers consequently abandon and embrace Christianity. Christian Faith among the Jieeng is an observatory, experiential and introductory discussion that opens up conversations about Jieeng spirituality in the context of Christian faith. The book draws attention to cultural teachings about social relationships, youth responsibilities, women’s leadership, and the role of leaders in guiding the faith and behaviors of the believers. It also discuss the following questions. Is Christianity the existence of God or a colonial tool to disintegrate indigenous cultures and values among the Jieeng? Why is Christianity miraculously taking precedence over indigenous religions and animist worships? What happened after the Jieeng believers in the Episcopal Diocese of Bor preferably embraced Christianity and abandoned their animist deities and divinities?

This book contains some truly eye-opening information, plus it’s a novel that’s based upon true events. Come and explore the legal justice system through the life of a lawyer, who was not always quite so down-to-earth.
The Blind Eyes of Justice is more than just a fictional novel; for it also discusses some very important other topics, such the death penalty, and the need to re-invent the current method of conducting jury trials. The author is adamant about the fact the current legal justice system is modeled after the Old Testament, and its beliefs; and the time has come for the entire system to be completely overhauled. The author also says that it’s time for people to start showing more forgiveness to offenders, because incarceration has been proven to be totally ineffective.
