What place does 'sacrifice' have in the modern world? The Bible says it is central - and that sacrifice is not only a vital key to the future, it is the essence of a Christian's life, today. Helen Roseveare skilfully weaves stories of sacrifice together with Christian teaching on the subject to show you how sacrifice is the key to joy.
Helen Roseveare (1925-2016) went to the Congo as a missionary between 1953 and 1973. A pioneer of vital medical work in the rainforests of this region, she had a major impact long after she left. Through many trials, she lived out her life striving to serve her Lord with every day and encouraging those around her to do the same.
Each time I read one of her accounts, I want to be like her, I want to know God as she does.
These very readable companion books by this well known missionary will touch a chord with all... These books will challenge and bless all who read them. They are highly recommended.
It is a fine book and will leave the reader with the supreme challenge... to love God... It is a challenging book and we are left with no ambiguities as to our response.
In the current climate of much self-satisfied and quick fix Christianity this book is a reminder of what it genuinely means to live for God's glory - when God becomes first and self second.
Drawing on her long experience as a Christian, the author challenges us to deeper faith and more sacrificial service, a call which is encouraging to read and hard to answer.
