Author Talks About Examining The Great Commission at the AJC Decatur Book Festival 2017

Online PR News – 13-August-2017 – Atlanta, GA – From 1 to 3 September 2017, Christopher Baidoo-Essien, author of Examining The Great Commission: A Call To Study will be joining this year's AJC Decatur Book Festival, a community-based, non-profit event and largest independent festival in the country. Being renowned as one of the five largest festivals in the country, DBF continues to gather world-class authors as well as hundreds of thousands of festival-goers to enjoy book signings, author readings, panel discussions, an interactive children's area, live music, parade, cooking demonstrations, poetry slams, writing workshops, and others. These activities will be happening in and around the historic downtown Decatur square.

"We always knew Atlanta had a thriving writing and book community, but it needed a centerpiece to bring all the parts together," Tom Bell points out as he recalls the history of DBF. It was when Daren Wang hatched a hare-brained idea to establish a festival celebrating the spoken/written word that brought the other dreamers and believers together. Tom Bell — founding program director, Linda Harris, Richard Lenz, Alice Murray, Bill Starr and Judy Turner then began brewing the magic.

The DBF got rave reviews shortly after 18 months of hard work and dedication in volunteering full-time, until its commencement over Labor Day weekend back in 2006, which was attended by over 100 authors and 50, 000 people. The success of the event was contributed by the combination of supportive local businesses and restaurants, eager and able volunteers, and the ability to walk easily from venue to venue.

Christopher Baidoo-Essien has been a Christian since September 1983. He holds degrees in mathematics and computer science and has worked as a software developer, Web developer, and programmer analyst since the spring of 2006. Being a Greek and Hebrew graduate student, he desires to teach biblical languages, preach and teach the gospel of Christ, and write books. God has truly opened the door for Essien as one of his aspirations in life has finally come. He pens his debut book, Examining The Great Commission: A Call To Study, a religious study that examines Jesus’s last words to His disciples. It focuses on the passages found in Matthew 28:18-20, Mark 16:15-18, and Luke 24:44-49 – passages that have been dubbed the Great Commission. This reading looks back at what the apostles and disciples did in Acts which will allow every reader to understand why those actions were done and how they submitted to God’s will to accomplish His purpose. In this study, Essien concludes that with the absence of the Great Commission, the authority cannot make disciples or save souls. Furthermore, in executing the Great Commission, people fail to make disciples or save souls if they pick and choose which part or parts of the charge they should follow.

BookBlastPro will represent the author at the AJC Decatur Book Festival. The festival-goers and other authors will have the opportunity of getting first-hand information about Essien and his book, Examining The Great Commission: A Call To Study. They will also get bookmarks and an opportunity of photo documentation which will be released after the event. The book selling will be announced at the event.

AJC Decatur Book Festival — Bookzilla, Christopher Baidoo-Essien’s book and the rest of the fun activities will make this event a literary powerhouse that will delight the attendees and will make this annual event a huge success, as what Tom Bell expressed: "That's what the festival does best."
