It is Worth ReadingComplexion, Cosmetics and the Christian is a handbook on a theology of physical beauty. But much more than being a theological booklet, it details a pastoral care for those who have poor image of their complexion. Dr. Ebenezer A. Nwankwo does not pull any punches with the issue of race, saying, "There is one human race, generated in many skin colors" His discourse of human complexions with supporting biblical references and comparisons with genetic makeups of human skin is very engaging and enlightening. I appreciate his unique style of engaging his reader with biblical references and applications to make clear a point or issue.
Dr. Nwankwo's pastoral-theological thinking is evident in his poem, "My skin" p.28. To the reader who wants to maintain a beauty that cannot fade with age or passage of time, Dr. Ebenezer A. Nwankwo offers or recommends no artificial adornment and makeups, but something natural, simple and within reach. "That something is character" p.78. The book is valuable for small group or class discussions on the many issues or points relating to biblical views of beauty, the use of cosmetics by Christians, race and skin colors.
