Product Description

In this new volume in the Foundations of Christian Faith series, Luther Ivory reflects on how to live the call to discipleship as an individual and as a community.

Drawing on his experiences and on those of other Christians such as John Calvin and Martin Luther King Jr., Ivory argues that we cannot live a Christian life without first belonging to a community. He describes the significance of active listening in the invitational rhythm of call and clarifies the biblical mandate for individuals and the church to respond to the call to join God in the struggle against evil and the establishment of righteousness in the world. Ultimately, he demonstrates for readers how to live a "life of engaged piety," which links reverence to God to an effort confronting the injustices of society.
