Discover the core ingredients that form the basis for effective ministry and Christian service. Faith and the Good Life... * Raises vital questions relative to each core ingredient discussed * Explores the nature of spiritual life and calls for integrity, commitment, growth, the facing of one's basic nature, creativity, a balanced life, identity with God and the maturation of selfhood * Analyzes the nature and essence of the Word as a foundation for ministry * Declares that preaching is central and significant in the Church's ministry * Recognizes the Holy Spirit as a person of intelligence and order; the Spirit tutors, inspires, cleanses, and assists believers in maximizing their potential * Shows that the church's strategy is not a technique or simplified formula; the content of its message is a relationship, a fellowship that channels spiritual vitality * Accentuates the necessity of giving God credit, of giving him the praise and honor for all blessings and beneficial accomplishments Dr. Richey asserts that ministering is more important than mere adherence to a written recipe or prescription. "Faith and the Good Life" calls for the establishment of community, fellowship, and ethical relationships. Without these core ingredients, the content of the faith becomes powerless.
