"Sometimes we limp between doubt and certainty between assurance and confusion, between realism and surrealism in our spiritual journey. The prophetic task is to cut through the machinations, doubts, and deception created by spiritual ambiguity. The experiences of Elijah, Elisha, and Amos shared in this book of sermons are lessons for the people of God and the church today."
-- from the Preface
Stewart's messages focus on the prophetic dimension of preaching: calling the people back to God, calling them to personal and social transformation, and exhorting them to human wholeness.
