'As you have Sown So shall you Reap,' is a book about clarifying the true understanding of the 'sowing-reaping analogy’ that is presented in the book of Galatians. It also presents itself as a resource book to those who desire to do research in a methodical manner. The process of unravelling of the text of Gal 6:7-10 can be a model for other upcoming researchers to emulate. This work is done under the able guidance of Dr. Lucien Legrand (MEP) whose right academic direction in exploring the text has emerged in this successful venture.
