Nassau, Bahamas - First featured in the Religious Section of The Tribune and in the Bahama Journal, Christian Conch Salad is a collection of devotional meditations by Rev. Angela C. Bosfield Palacious, the first Female Bahamian Anglican Priest and formidable yet humble woman of God. Designed for personal reflection as well as family and group discussion, these devotions cover a broad range of practical spirituality both at home and out in the world. Through her powerful autobiography Reverend Palacious encourage readers in spiritual awareness and self-love as part of their relationship with God.

A book signing is set for
Saturday, February 18th from 11am to 1pm at Buy the Book bookstore (opposite Saunders Beach and west of KFC).


The title of Christian Conch Salad (a Bahamian delicacy) is intended to convey the idea of a spicy collection of “materially-mixed meditations”. Just as conch salad has conch, tomatoes, onion, sweet pepper, celery, lime, salt and other ingredients if desired, so too, this book consists of reflections on a vast array of subjects over an undetermined period of time.

Some of these meditations were written for airing on radio, others were written for church bulletins and newspapers. They are presented as observations on life as seen through the eyes of a Bahamian Christian.
 
“It is my desire that you digest it all, internalizing and applying to your own situation whatever seems to be relevant at the time. I also trust that it will leave a memorable taste in your mouth” ~ Rev. Angela C. Bosfield Palacious”
 
“Every reader is invited to travel through life and death experiences which take you into the heart of God. I am indeed grateful for Reverend Angela’s inspiration and wisdom in writing these insightful meditations for spiritual discernment to approach the myriads of life’s challenges.” ~ Jacqueline Mycklewhyte
 
“What you have here is a very brilliant book. It is creative and a great inspiration…Nation saving, it seems, is upper most on her mind.” ~ Obediah Smith
 
“Outstanding, succinct and insightful. Spans the range of everyday experiences which people of all ages, young and senior can identify. Paves the way to positively impact spiritual wholeness. The Lord has guided Angela’s heart, soul and hand yet again. Truly a bestseller.” ~ Matthew Mitchell
