We congratulate the Rev Dr Alan Maker for successfully authoring and publishing a book entitled “The End is in the Beginning – The Triumphant Victory of Creation”, which he produced during the lockdown. Prof John de Gruchy has penned a beautiful foreword to the book. Prof John de Gruchy recommended the book as the best reader that ought to be prescribed reading for every new minister, lay preacher, and interested layperson.  You are all encouraged to support of the veterans as you obtain a copy or copies of the book. A copy of the book’s front cover is attached herewith.

The book is in circulation already and it is available on Amazon, but the Rev Dr Maker would like to make a special offer to the UPCSA ministers.  The book’s usual price is R220 but he would like to make it available at R200 and he is prepared to pay the courier charges as the Post Office seems very unreliable.  For him to do this he would need to receive

  1. proof of payment to his account DA Maker, Standard Bank, Account Number: 001922483.  His email is;
  2. the name and street address to which it has to be sent;
  3. the receiver’s mobile phone number; and
  4. if the person buying has a PEP store nearby that is the cheapest and is efficient,  the above details and the local PEP Store’s address.

In appreciation and in anticipation, I also announce that the book by the Rev JV Mdlalose is near completion and, as soon as it is done, it will also be advertised. (Hence my call to supporting  “the veterans” above).
