Overview

As one might expect from such a consumate debater and thinker, Ian Markham offers an attractive and compelling range of sermons and papers that speak wisely to the issues of our day. This is a profound yet accessible book from one of the great Christian communicators and scholars of our age. Markham's book will cause readers to ask hard questions of themselves; but also to have some hope in the future. This is an excellent book, full of wisdom and insight.

On October 22, 2010, a fire took hold in the 129 year old Immanuel Chapel at the Virginia Theolocal Seminary. The title of this collection of essays and sermons is taken from the words surrounding the altar window in that chapel. The author uses this tragedy as a gateway into reflecting on the nature of faith and the challenge of engagement. This important book includes the sermons preached after the chapel fire tragedy, as well as several unpublished articleson issues as diverse as 'Radical Orthodoxy' and 'Gay Marriage.'
