The Center for Community Transformation Group of Ministries recently launched a four-volume set of books tracing the history of the Philippines from a Christian perspective. The books are written in Filipino by historian Fe B. Mangahas with contributions from Imelda Cajipe Endaya.
CCT president and founder Ruth Callanta said, “I pray these books will give their readers a clearer understanding of our history, undo feelings of bitterness and anger about our past, and inspire everyone to build a new Philippines where truth, justice, progress, and peace prevail.”
Volume 1 of Kasaysayan ng Ating Bayan – Ang Pilipinas Noon at Ngayon covers early history to 1500 A.D. Volume 2 covers Spanish colonialism to the American occupation (1500 – 1898). Volume 3 covers the years 1899 to 1946. Volume 4 covers the years 1947 to 2012
The books may be purchased at the CCT support office, 5th Floor, Joshua Center, Taft Avenue, Ermita, Manila. For inquires, please call 524-18-10 local 214 and ask for Ralph Parado.
Prices: 1 set - P1,000.00; individual volumes - P250.00 each; 10 sets or more - P850 per set
