A Critical Analysis of the Interpretation of the Doctrine of «Justification by Faith Alone» by the Lutheran Church of Christ in Nigeria, Gongola Diocese
First, I thank God Almighty for guidance, protection, health and success of this study. I thank my sponsors, Karlslunde Strandkirke Congregation Denmark for their magnanimity in offering me sponsorship and also assisting my family. My appreciation also goes to my friend Rev. Jesper Ertmann Oehlenschläger and his family, who has been very instrumental in making the connection between me and the congregation. My wife Labauga and children Mercy, Hope, Joyce, Grace and John have been wonderful companions throughout this journey. I thank them for their sacrifice and support.
Secondly, my profound gratitude goes to Prof. Isabel Apawo Phiri, my supervisor, for her devotion, encouragement and availability. She was not only a supervisor to me but also a mother and mentor. I thank Dr. Roderick R. Hewitt for accepting to co-supervise my work; and for his commitment and valuable suggestions and contributions which made significant impact on this study. I would also like to mention the UKZN community for granting me admission. I thank the School of Religion, Philosophy and Classics for creating a conducive environment for study and also granting me scholarship to help me finalize my study. I thank Sister Maggie Govender of the UKZN Campus Clinic Pietermaritzburg, whose timely intervention saved my life when I was stressed up due to what the family was passing through back home. My thanks also go to Dr. Sean Drew, who handled my situation with diligence, respect and commitment. I thank Dr. Jay P. Karappian.
