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.
