About the Book

Humphrey W. Muciiri was taught by his parents that there was only one God who created the heavens and the earth. That God controlled everything. He was to be feared and obeyed. Humphrey had no clue how to obey God. Although characters such as Abraham, Moses, and David are considered great men of God, they disobeyed Him. Jesus Christ is the only human being who fully obeyed God and died to save humankind from eternal damnation. He became the model for humankind to emulate to live happily and joyfully now and hereafter.

Humphrey wanted to have a happy and joyful life now and hereafter. He regularly read the Bible, attended church every Sunday to please God by doing good. But human nature drove him to do evil deeds. He became greatly disturbed and conflicted about what to do. After high school, the Holy Spirit revealed to him that it was by God’s grace he would be saved through faith in Jesus Christ. It was not through striving but through God’s gift, and so he could not boast about it, (Ephesians 2:9: GNB,1994). Even after believing in Jesus Christ, he still could not claim to be sinless. But by regular Bible reading, he found that when he confessed his sins to God, he had peace in his heart because he was forgiven of all wrongdoing, (1 John 1: 8-9: GNB,1994). He is continually being shaped by God to the likeness of Jesus Christ.

Later, Humphrey earned a bachelor of science degree from University of Nairobi, Kenya, a master of arts from Daystar University, Nairobi, Kenya, and a Ph.D. in Organization and Management from Capella University, Minneapolis, Minnesota, U.S.A. Over three decades before coming to the United States, he worked as an entrepreneur and a manufacturing executive in multinational corporations, traveled and worked in different parts of the world. Before retirement he worked as an adjunct professor at Indiana Wesleyan University, U.S.A. He is the author of two other books namely Sons and Dads: Who will Reconcile Them? and The United States and Kenya: How Similar or Different are the Two Nations?

About the Author

Humphrey W. Muciiri wrote “Being Continually Shaped: A Life Story” when he was 82 years old. His first objective was to share his unique past challenges and help other people, whose challenges though different, resolving them could be similar. The second objective was to keep a record to educate and help younger members of his family. The third objective was to record the genealogical line of descent of the Kinyoi family. Kinyoi was the oldest ancestor his forebears could remember.
