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.
