The inspiration to write came by the Holy Spirit, with the desire to make known the truth.
• What memories of your childhood do you hold dear.
James Adigun: The memories of my childhood that I hold dear is
that of an event, when a man robbed me, of a sum of money given me by my mother for an errand.
Some days after the incidence, the man came to the street where I resided to purchase something, and on my seeing
him, there was a
flashback of his face in my memory, and I immediately alerted my mother, who with the help of the men around apprehended the man, and he
confessed to the charges against him. He was made to refund the money he stole from me. The adults at the event commended
me for being able to recognize the man that robbed me, and I was happy for the recovery of the stolen money.
• Is there any book you are currently working on? Tell us about it.
James Adigun: The book I am presently working on is titled,
“God, and Man”.
Everything in heaven is about God, and on earth it is about Man. Heaven is the place of the throne of God, but the earth He
has made for man.
When, why, and how did He do that, is made known is the
book that we may know
our purpose on earth ,to man, and to God.
• Why do you write?
James Adigun: The purpose of my writing is to share the truth
made known to me by
God with others, as mandated by God in His word as recorded in Habakkuk 2:2, “And the LORD answered me, and said, write
the vision, and make it plain upon tablets, that he may run that read it.”
