The Manual for Righteous Living is a refreshing game-changing source of strength to transcend the frailties and pitiful arrogance of humans in order to receive the covering, security, endless provision of Abba Father. This empowering inspirational book offers immense insight to all truth seekers. The author’s challenging biblical illustrations and stories of key Biblical figures throughout the book, further expounded in analogous reference to an ordinary manual go to show extraordinary faith and lifestyle of characters of the old and the new era worthy of emulating. Mrs Biriyok introduces the reader to key elements of “the manual for righteousness” such as repentance and salvation, faith, knowledge of the word, abiding in the Word, evangelising, commitment and hope. The instructional approach to the key elements of holiness and godliness provides knowledge beyond what you may gain in your regular church attendance and provokes the quest for knowledge and closeness to God. Whilst it subtly transforms your old ways thereby birthing in you the new creature to God’s glory. A valuable addition to the devotional library for either the new or the experienced Christian.

The Manual for Righteous Living is a handbook that stresses the importance and significance of scripture in the Christian life. The author is very knowledgeable of the Bible and her writing often reads as if is is from the Bible. She used the same type of wording and format. She also uses several stories from the Bible to stress her points. It is a very short and quick to read book. She uses the story of Biblical characters to show that their characteristics are ones that we should have in our own lives. She includes many topics on the path to righteousness, such as salvation, faith and knowing the scriptures.
