The All – Sufficient Jesus Christ as a book is written as an antidote to the prevailing heretical teachings and practices in the Church which question the orthodox faith in the uniqueness and absolute sufficiency of Jesus Christ. As an exposition of St. Paul’s epistle to the Colossian Christians of his time, it handles the fundamental teachings on the person and work of Jesus Christ and deals with the issues of syncretism and false religious practices of the Colossian Church and the contemporary age. Some cardinal issues of Christian doctrine handled in the book include the pre-¬existence of Jesus Christ, Christ’s personality as the image of God, the fullness of the Godhead made manifest in Jesus Christ and complete salvation of the spirit, soul, and body of man found in Him alone. Jesus Christ is the head of the church, highly exalted above all things visible and invisible, above all powers and principalities in heaven, on earth and even under the earth. The above facts are presented against the backdrop of existing heretical teachings that require Christians to gain special knowledge, indulge in rituals and mere religious regulations and recognise intermediaries other than Christ in their quest for God. The author of the book “The All Sufficient Jesus Christ” has carefully addressed the problems of syncretism, the wind of religious pluralism and moral laxity evident in present day Christianity within the context of Christianity in Ebira land and Africa as a whole.
