About the Book

In the dying months of my seventy-eighth birthday in the year 2011, something clicked within me. I was remembering a historic undelivered letter and the private and painful burden I bore for a time to keep this letter undelivered. My reflections took me back to the 1985 Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) held in Nassau, Bahamas. The Commission of Inquiry was looking into whether or not the first prime minister, Sir Lynden Pindling, had any involvement in drug-trafficking proceeds and was over in late 1983, and its outcome was almost and probably forgotten by the general population.

About the Author

The Rev. Dr. Philip Rahming, OBE, JP, a graduate of Calabar Theological College, Kingston, Jamaica; Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville Kentucky; and United Theological Seminary, Dayton Ohio, began his schooling at Sandilands Primary School in Fox Hill New Providence, Bahamas, his hometown. As a boy, Phillip always had a love for service and a determination to become outstanding in his endeavors. Nurtured in a Baptist Sunday School where his grandfather was the Superintendent, young Rahming learned that God gave special gifts to individuals and that each person has a particular contribution to make in life. As an adult, the Reverend Doctor Rahming became president of the Bahamas Christian Council and served for six years. Later, he became a member of the Ethics Commission of the Baptist World Alliance (BWA). A former secondary school teacher, retired University of the Bahamas lecturer, and past chaplain to the honorable speaker of the Bahamas Parliament. Doctor Rahming is currently vice president at large of the National Baptist Missionary and Education Convention, a commission member on Baptist Doctrine and Interchurch Cooperation of the BWA, and pastor of Rehoboth Ministries. Reverend Rahming wrote the Bahamas Pledge of Allegiance and the national song of the Bahamas, “God Bless Our Sunny Clime.” He is also the author of two books, Martin Luther King Jr.: His Religion, His Philosophy and The Pledge of the Bahamas: Its History.
