Abstract:

"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 here is a time and a place where the church community was faithful to its mission as the Body of Christ: church leaders led; people lifted high the cross and 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 draws upon a collection of sermons and addresses given by Peter Storey in a variety of contexts. The original audiences range from the Central Methodist Mission in Johannesburg to the South African Council of Churches to the nation of South Africa to us - here and now." "Prophetic words are timeless. The words in this book offer the full perspective of what it means to speak truth, to empower people to stand for the truth, and to pastor souls during times when living truth seems almost impossible." --Book Jacket.
