The Way of Righteousness
These 100 lessons are a simple arrangement of the glorious Word of God and a display of the One who is "altogether lovely."
"Even if a log soaks a long time in water, it will never become a crocodile." (Wolof proverb) ...nor does being RELIGIOUS make a person RIGHTEOUS. Religious rituals and good deeds may make people FEEL and APPEAR righteous, but they do not make them truly righteous before God. THE WAY OF RIGHTEOUSNESS is an English translation of one hundred 15-minute radio programs originally written in the Wolof language for the Muslims of Senegal, West Africa. Beginning with the Torah of Moses, this book journeys through the writings of the prophets to view God's unalterable purpose throughout human history and to hear God's timeless answer to a 4000-year-old question: "HOW CAN A MAN BE RIGHTEOUS BEFORE GOD?" (The Prophet Job)
Muslims believe that God has revealed His will through four holy books (Torah, Psalms, Gospel, Qur'an). Yet few Muslims ever have opportunity to hear and understand God's Good News according to the Torah, the Psalms and the Gospel. These 100 concise lessons offer that opportunity. "IN THE WAY OF RIGHTEOUSNESS IS LIFE..." (The Prophet Solomon)
Over the past quarter-century, Paul Bramsen and his wife have lived, worked and raised their family in a majority-Muslim nation on the edge of the Sahara. Paul's writings flow from a passion for the Scriptures and from thousands of dialogues with Muslim friends, neighbors and acquaintances. Paul is also the author of “The Way of Righteousness,” a 100-program chronological radio series, which has been or is being translated into over 70 languages fro broadcast in Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
I am a native of Santa Barbara, California. Since a kid I have enjoyed photography and film-making – especially in the great outdoors. My main passions in life, however, are my God, His Word and my family. Since my late teens I have made study of the Holy Scriptures a serious pursuit. I know of nothing more rewarding! God's Word is awesome–and worthy of our full trust! I plan to meditate its pages til my dying day. I love my wife and three kids too. Carol and I are blessed to have three children who have grown into responsible young adults with hearts of love for God and people. We have worked in Senegal, West Africa since 1981. Two of our three children were born there. Senegal is a unique majority-Muslim-nation that grants its people the basic right to choose what they will or will not believe. We consider it a tremendous privilege to be allowed to teach the central message of God's true prophets to any who earnestly desire the knowledge of God and His "so great ! salvation." What a joy has been ours to witness the transformation that has taken place in the hearts and lives of those who have believed!
