Insights into the human experience
Where does the name Piula come from?
Piula is the Samoan form of Beulah meaning Married in Isaiah 62:4. There it is part of a passage in which the prophet promises that God will bring recovery to a devastated Jerusalem. The city is likened to an abused wife, but, he says, better times are ahead. She will yet come to know what it is to be happily married. The picture is one of restoration, of new life, and of deliverance.
For a period of some years, earlier in our lives, Ruth and I were part of the Piula Theological College in Western Samoa, where I served as Principal. This gives the personal reason for choosing the publishing name.
