Often the church is accused of being so embedded in the culture that effective prophecy leveled at the culture is impossible. But this book illustrates that there was a time and a place where the church community was faithful to its mission as the body of Christ, as church leaders led, people lifted high the cross, and they marched into the uncertainty that still prevails. Here is a time and place where the call to risky discipleship was answered not with whimpers, whines, and excuses, but with the power of faithful Christians living out their call. This book illustrates what it can mean to faithfully answer the call to discipleship and God's service. Many people wonder if they would be able to stand up for their faith if it meant great personal sacrifice or the sacrifice of people they love. They wonder what they would risk for their faith, if anything. In the United States where cost/benefit analysis is a popular way to assess risk, many Christians wonder if they might not have to stand alone, because too many see the risks as too costly. As suggested by the title, this book draws upon a collection of sermons and addresses given by Peter Storey in a variety of contexts between 1966 and 1993. The original audiences ranged from the all-white Central Methodist Church in Johannesburg, to the South African Council of Churches, to the nation of South Africa, and to the world. All of these sermons and addresses are directly related to specific historical events: security police confrontations, beatings, and tear-gassings in churches around the country of South Africa; an imposed State of Emergency; the murder of 14-year-old Stompie Sepie by Winnie Mandela's thugs; and the violent jockeying for power between Mandela's African National Congress, Chief Mangosutho Buthelizi's Inkatha Movement, and F. W. de Klerk's regime. The book offers the full perspective of what it means to speak truth, empower people to stand for the truth, and to pastor souls during times when living truth seems almost impossible. Key Features: 1. Foreword by Desmond Tutu 2. 15 chapters, each including a brief description of the original context, the sermon and its connection with the present, and a prayer 3. Epilogue by Will Willimon

Over the past forty years Europe has grown as a global presence and today it plays an important role in a variety of ways: politically, socially, economically, and culturally, European theologians have no choice but to take cognizance, of this fact and respond to the broad social challenges by clarifying their views on God and being a prophetic voice in cultural, political and social decisionmaking. The authors in this volume take up four main contemporary global challenges, i.e. globalization, violence, gender, and the environment, and the volume provides its readers with first-rate theological reflections in Europe. The articles offered here are the result of an intensive workshop held in Leaven in September 2004 and are sponsored by the European Commission and the VLIR. as part of a three-year study program on the understanding of God in Europe.

God is in the white-hot crucible experiences of our lives. There are life experiences that can crush our spirits, overwhelm our emotions, cause our minds to spin, leave our bodies weak o point of collapse, and lead us to cry out, "Lord, I don't know if I can handle this." Such experiences can be compared to being in a crucible-a vessel that can withstand the high temperatures needed to melt metal without affecting the essence of the metal. The crucible is the image used in Scripture to describe the spiritual formation work God is doing in our lives. We are not alone in the crucible. God is with us in the midst of it, sustaining us! In the Crucible is a journey through such an experience. Walk with the author and see how you too can "see" God in the midst of your hard times and experience the steadfast heart He give us to sustain you. In the Crucible is "a cane" that will help you keep your balance when you wonder how you can continue? (from the Forward by Haddon Robinson.)

There she must confront the past itself, for the Crucible holds a secret kept even from the Old Races – a secret so staggering that Kali is about to discover the true reason her world is called Twilight…

This book titled “In the Crucible for Service” is written by Professor ZachariasTanee Fomum. In this book, the author examines the preparation necessary to enter into the service of God. Drawing from the examples of men of the Bible; Joseph, Moses, David and the Lord Jesus, the author highlights the fact that serving God must always be preceded by serving a man. Ministry is not only the overflow of the Holy Spirit, but also of the anointing. The person who will serve God must have a sense of destiny. With a sense of destiny, such a person becomes very meticulous about everything. He can no longer go anywhere any time. The person asks how each thing fits into the call of God and purposes of God for his life. The author invites whosoever will want to serve God to abandon sin, self-love, and the love of the world and the love of the things of the world so as to be a competent minister for God’s service We recommend this book to you, dear reader, with prayer that the Lord will use it to prepare you to enter into His service.
