These Bible studies, the first part of a larger collection, were first given in Ethiopia, Somaliland, Tanzania and Kenya. Cuthbert Dawkins was close to young African Christians. They were often in difficult circumstances. For them being a disciple of Jesus was a weighty matter. The studies were a conversation. They led to questions and discussions, and the faith was confirmed to the young believers. They had known waterless deserts and muddy pools of spiritual life, but they came to love Jesus’ own illustration of His truths being like a spring of pure water.
