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.

One of my favorite Christian books. I read this while I was on missions in Taiwan and it ministered to me when my own faith was being stretched. The stories are amazing, but drip with authenticity. She write with a real, clear style, avoiding any sense of sensationalism. Highly recommended read.
