Show synopsis The topic of submission elicits strong opinions from many people both inside and outside of the church. In his latest book, Touching Godliness through Submission, K.P. Yohannan, president and founder of Gospel for Asia, stakes out territory in one of the most misunderstood and controversial issues in modern Christianity.Drawing upon the life of Jesus as the ultimate example of truly yielding to God's will, Yohannan explains how something we see as our own worst enemy, submission, is actually the true pathway to freedom, healing and blessing."You will find submission at the crossroads of every conflict in life," Yohannan said. "From children and their parents to the worker and his boss to the citizen and his president, you'll find people struggling with the concept of submission to authority. This teaching touches on daily life no matter what our current role."In Touching Godliness through Submission, Yohannan mixes highly practical and deeply divine concepts as he probes into the role of Christ and the fall of Satan. He also shows how man's natural tendency toward rebellion was inherited from the first man, Adam. Yohannan then explains the true nature of submission in the Christian's life, using illustrations drawn from Bible heroes as well as from events in his own life. A prolific author and highly regarded ministry leader, Yohannan often challenges commonly held views of Christians around the world. His previous books, including the landmark Revolution in World Missions, have moved many readers to abandon shallow Christianity in favor of a more intense, personal relationship with God. In Touching Godliness through Submission, Yohannan guides readers through the landmines of misconceptions about this often misunderstood subject. Gospel for Asia is an evangelical mission organization based in Dallas, Texas involved in sharing the love of Jesus across South Asia.
