Centering Our Souls: Devotional Reflections of a University President

Framsida
Mercer University Press, 2005 - 177 sidor
For more than twenty-five years, R. Kirby Godsey has been a regular in the Chapel Services at Mercer University as a proclaimer of the Word. Collected for the first time, these sermons reveal a vision for the Christian living out one's faith in the world. Godsey's unique prospective requires that the hearer/reader be a critical thinker in their faith. Brought to print for the first time in this book, these sermons serve as a clarion call for faithful and radical discipleship and honesty.
