Item description for Living Faith: Willing to be stirred as a pot of paint by Helen Roseveare...

Overview
"The quiet, consistent lives of Christian students drew me and began to convince me. The teaching in their Bible study groups and the assurance in their daily prayer meetings brought a sense of sober reality. They talked of faith as an objective reality, not a blind leap-in-the-dark, hoping for the best. Faith to them was something far more wonderful and real than mere believism or frightened escapism. They spoke of faith as a fact, a gift from God himself to his people to enable them to grasp and comprehend truth." Thus starts Helen Roseveare's search for spiritual understanding of the world around her - a world that she was to have a significant impact on once her new faith led her to Africa. Dr. Helen Roseveare has led an exciting life, dealing with people in the depths of their despair - and at their most joyous. She has also become a prolific author and sought after conference speaker - still writing and speaking at international conferences on faith and mission. Her 'Living...' series have become instant classics and we are pleased to reprint them for a new audience. Here, Helen tells stories of faith from her experiences that help us to understand its role in our lives and how to strengthen it.

Also read Living Sacrifice ISBN 978 184550 2942] - now back in print. The other books in this series are Living Stones, Living Holiness and Living Fellowship. As I read the books of Helen Roseveare, these powerful words come to my mind REALITY, VISION, INTEGRITY, COURAGE, ACTION and FORGIVENESS. They are all words that we need to hold centrally in our lives too. Perhaps you don t read many books but I would urge you to read this one - and then to share what you ve learned with others. They are a huge challenge to the indifference and lukewarm-ness of our day. It is necessary for the church to have IMPACT for the good of this world. Helen shows what kind of impact you too can have.

Reviews - What do customers think about Living Faith: Willing to be stirred as a pot of paint?

A personal testimony of faith in action.  Apr 12, 2010
This book is an intense personal testimony of a missionary's daily living in carrying out her Divinely inspired commission. It is unusually balanced in covering her experiences from the standpoint of Spirit, Soul and Body. Most testimonies cover only one or two standpoints, but rarely all three. Helen has a strong sense of God's sovereignty, is never embittered by her circumstances, regardless of how outwardly negative, and remains keenly focused, regardless of the confusion and misunderstanding of others surrounding and interacting with her. She is a faithful minister, steadfastly carrying out her commission even at the risk of her physical life and reputation.

There are many touching personal stories, but the one that continues to bring me to tears of joy and inspiration is the one about the eight-year-old orphan girl's simple and direct prayer that was answered three months before it was uttered. It still sends chills down my spine every time I reread it. If you are looking for a strengthening of your faith, practical examples of faith in action and strong emotional involvment, this is the book for you.
