Often the church is accused of being so embedded in the culture that effective prophecy is impossible. But there is a time and a place where the call to risky discipleship is answered not with whimpers 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.
Drawing upon a collection of sermons and addresses given in a variety of contexts, Peter Storey preaches to Central Methodist Mission in Johannesburg, the nation of South Africa, and to us -- here and now.
