Synopsis: The best of biblical scholarship and theological reflection is combined in these sermons that speak eloquently about a question of vital importance to all Christians—what does it mean to be a person under God? The urgent need for interdependence of all people in order to fulfill God’s compassionate will for individuals, nations, and the world is the central theme underlying these 13 sermons. Interpreting the Scripture texts in light of contemporary concerns. Dr. Proctor and Dr. Watley consider the cultural, social, political, economic, and religious realities of our world as they are and as they should be if Christians are to take God’s Word seriously. They offer hope and direction for living in steadfast confidence as people of God. These sermons prepared by two distinguished men of the black Christian community are excellent resources for preachers of all denominations. They are timely, speak to the concerns of a troubled world, and express the hope for a renewal of compassion as well as a commitment to discipleship by all people.
