Dr. Zacharias T. Fomum is a minister of the Word, and a scientist. He combines the teaching of organic chemistry at the University of Yaounde, Cameroon, West Africa, with the spiritual ministry of teaching the Word in many countries. He searches out facts and presents them in a teachable format.
In expanded outline form, Dr. Fomum presents the Biblical teaching about who an intercessor is, what intercession is, and how an intercessor intercedes in this book entitled, The Art of Intercession.
An intercessor then ... takes the sin of another upon himself... He pleads and labours with God until the guilty party is forgiven.
Pointing to a great shortage of intercessors, the question is asked, “Does it matter to you?”
Biblical teaching on intercession is covered in both the Old and New Testaments. Perhaps the greatest need of the Church today is that we be intercessors. Dr. Fomum examines the art of intercession as practised by Moses, Abraham, Daniel, Nehemiah, Paul, Epaphras and Jesus Himself.
The challenge is disturbing as the reader realizes how short of the mark is even the most spiritual of Christians.
Dr. Fomum practises what he teaches, as do some Churches in Cameroon. Who of us prays for several hours each day? Who of us fasts and prays in spiritual warfare for from 21-40 days at a time, several times per year?
This book is MUST reading for the serious Christian.
