Moses Tay: Born for Blessings
Tay, Moses (2009), Born for Blessings: An Autobiography of Moses Tay, Singapore, Genesis Books.
I am always curious about people who writes their own autobiographies. Moses Tay is a medical doctor who was the Director of Tan Tock Seng Hospital in Singapore before he resigned to take up the post of the 7th Bishop of Singapore (1982-2000) and the 1st Archbishop of South East Asia (1996-2000).
In this highly readable autobiography, Moses Tay set out to narrate the story of his life. It is wonderful to read about his faith and God's bountiful blessings in each of the stages of his life. However, personally I will like to read more about the inner Moses Tay; his struggles, his formative factors and his regrets (if any).
This book will serve as a useful resource for students of Christian history in Malaysia and Singapore, and also of the Anglican community.
