In the 1800s, the term shunpikers was coined for drivers who avoid toll roads at all cost, going out of their way, sometimes many miles, to avoid paying a small fee. The ironic nature of shunpiking is that it usually costs the driver more in time and money than the toll would have. Sometimes, the driver winds up lost and never even arrives at their desired destination. In Shunpiking: No Shortcuts to God, Reno Omokri says many believers want the blessings of God without paying the "toll." When God's children accept the price of applying biblical principles to their lives, they avoid the headaches and heartaches that come with trying to find their own way. Reno Omokri has enjoyed a long career in politics in Nigeria, where he now handles media relations for the president. In the same vein as CS Lewis, Shunpiking: No Shortcuts to God is a series of essays and lessons to all believers on applying biblical principles to our lives. At one time or another, all Christians struggle with veering off the path, leading lives of missed opportunities. Omokri shows you how to get back on the road God set before you, to attain the blessings He promised.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“Reno is a passionate visionary. He has worked at the highest level of politics and has never lost focus for why he does it—to improve the lives of ordinary people guided by his values of peace and justice. I've known Reno for a long time, and it's obvious how his faith inspires him—spiritually, professionally, and personally—and it will also inspire all who read this book.” —Joe Trippi, Founder and President of Trippi & Associates

“I was there when Reno started the Mind of Christ Christian Center and both my wife and I have grown in the knowledge of God from the teachings he has taught. Reno reminds me of Daniel in the bible. He is presently an influential and top government official whose worked in Parliament in the U.K. and with a major political consultancy in the U.S. yet he finds time to do the work of God full time and this book is a practical work of principles from the bible simplified with very workable ways to apply them in the modern world. I thank God that He gave Reno the inspiration to write it.” —John Fashanu, Former English International Football Player, TV Sports Presenter and ex-UNICEF Ambassador.

This book is exceptional. The best Christian themed book I have read in 2014. I highly recommend this book and if I had my way, this book should be in many more languages asides English. It is a must read.

A Christian is a believer in Jesus Christ and his teaching. In Shunpiking by Reno Omokri the author extrapolates from the Bible as he enlightens the reader on the deeper meaning of Christ's death as it relates to the transformation and spiritual growth of a believer. The book is a must read for anyone seeking an intimate relationship with God. Unlike several Christian authors Omokri uses an urbane, well researched approach, yet one that is easily understood. The themes of transformation, empowerment, righteousness and utility of prayers are well applied. This book is well written and capable of transforming one's life from mediocrity to excellence. Omokri is a gifted teacher and his revelational knowledge of the Bible is quite vast. I look forward to reading more books by this author, the book is phenomenal. ~ Yinka Theisen

Shunpinking by Reno Omokri is a must read for every Christian. In this book, Reno has presented the principles of God in simple language  with illustrations that even a new believer can understand. He has also done a good job by referencing every point with scripture rightly explained in the book. The book just couldn't have come at a better time than  now when so much toxic gospel is out there to unsuspecting audience. I recommend this book for every Christian and indeed for non-Christians who would like to understand the ways of God. I have read it and I can say that its worth all the  read! - David Ochi

This is a book that every Christain should read. It contains timesless principles from God's word. I read it at a point when I needed direction and some specific results in my life. It has become a daily manual for me of sort. Thank you Pastor Reno for yeilding to God and penning down this masterpiece. Shunpiking is a book the whole world needs to read. Simple wisdom, Kingdom principles and values are embedded in it.

When I tell people that Reno Omokri is a great Bible teacher, I had no proof to show, no hyperlinks or media to share. Now I have Shunpiking as proof! If you have been confused about the Good News that Jesus Christ delivered to us, you must read this book. Having listened to, and read from, Reno dozens of times, this book was no surprise. But have you met Reno as I have? If you have not, I recommend this book as your encounter with a man God is using to show the simplicity of the Gospel. If you have met him like I have, I still recommend this book for its heavy but simple message that the the Kingdom of God is not a matter of what we eat or drink, but of living a life of goodness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

An exceptional and inspiring book. You hardly find truths been exposed in this book elsewhere as it is evident that there are no Shortcuts! I remember in Matthew 25:39,And going a little farther he fell on his face and prayed, saying, “My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will.”Jesus knew there are no Shortcuts to heaven how much more us. It's really a life changing book!  Jide
