FORTY YEARS ON – Memoirs of a Schoolmaster

by Earnest Lau

Read about how significant persons, events and institutions has shaped the author and helped him to live well. In his references to his Christian values and in the way he has told his story, the author has demonstrated the best in an ACSian gentleman and a Christian whose steps are ordered by sovereign God.

This book is a pleasure to read both because of its poignant and reflective contents as well as the wit and command of the English language with which it is delightfully written. This book is highly recommended to ACSians, both young and old.
