This book is a collection of three Christian plays entitled “All or Nothing”, ”Time Out” and “Beauty for Ashes”. The plays deal with the immense love God has for his people and the need for his people to serve him with their whole heart; the reality of the Christians’ spiritual warfare, and the need for all to remember and give to the poor.
The peace and calm in the land of Jikunda, one of the six villages in the province of Lemota, are shattered when the province is attacked by unknown invaders, and the Samota, the traditional and spiritual leader of the province is reported dead.
The Jikunda council of elders, the Dikas, are relieved when they find that the invaders actually come in peace. Dika Boluti thinks otherwise. As the months go by, events reinforce Boluti’s suspicion that there is more to the invaders than meets the eye. All or Nothing explores the many compromises people make on the altar of peace and convenience. It examines the challenges of remaining faithful to one’s beliefs and values in the face of adversity and seeming hopelessness, as well as God’s unchanging requirement for His people to serve Him with their whole heart.
The play is set in a contemporary office. Phillip and Francesca are both Christians with different degrees of commitment to their Christian walk with God. As they interact in the office, it becomes clear that a lot of the things that they do in the physical are actually being orchestrated in the spiritual realm.
