No book, however comprehensive, can hope to capture all the facets of Chief Chris Ogunbanjo’s life, which is a beacon of life to the younger generation. But I will be the first to admit that this book has passed all expectations. One inescapable fact in this book is that from cradle, the subject was brought up in the fear of God as the beginning of Wisdom. The spiritual dimension of his life is as strong if not stronger than his material grandeur. A Life of Grace reflects that spiritual strength in the Chief that made it easy for him to handle the high points of success and the occasional occurrence of anguish with admirable and remarkable equanimity. All of the legacies captured in this book- in particular his good name; the impeccable strength of character that can only come from the child of the Lord of character- will live forever.
