Alistair Petrie is one of the foremost international Bible teachers of today. He homes in on subjects that have a prophetic cutting-edge towards transformation of communities. With many years of experience behind him, he challenges the presuppositions of us all by suggesting that things don't have to remain as they are. A good read if you are prepared to be challenged to do things differently in expressing the kingdom of God where you are.

This is a timely read. As with all of Alistair Petrie's books it is both theologically sound and extremely practical. I have gleaned several insights that I will be putting into practice in my local setting.

Alistair Petrie is an exceptional teacher in the area of transformation. He uses insights from 2 Kings chapter 3 to compel us to inquire of the Lord, address issues in the land and to dig ditches that will be conduits of God's provision and healing for our cities and lands. Alistair is also a strong and seasoned practitioner. His insights help us to root the teaching into our communities, in every sphere, working in relationship, in the opposite spirit and in faith and expectancy. I took many helpful notes as I read this and I'm sure you will too.

Ditch digging is hard, dirty, backbreaking work with no glamour and receives little praise. Yet, it is a vital function that contributes greatly to the infrastructure of our homes and communities. We often hear of the importance of laying a firm foundation from political, business and religious circles. Every foundation requires that a ditch be dug -- and very few of us want any part of it. Alistair Petrie insightfully exalts the demanding task of the ditch digger to that of spiritual leadership. There are no shortcuts to the spiritual renewal and breakthrough for which so many long. God, in His wisdom and sovereignty, has chosen to respond to the cry and hard work of His people, and those who are willing to listen and roll up their sleeves and who obediently go to work will change our world. Prophetic Ditch Diggingis a succinct and Scripturally-based primer for how to partner with God for His Kingdom, redemptive purposes -- it has stirred a deeper desire to "tune up", do our homework and take the obedient next steps to be relevant in the days ahead.
