Helen Roseveare's search for spiritual understanding
Dealing with people in the depths of despair and heights of joy
Stories from her experience
"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.
Helen Roseveare (1925-2016) went to the Congo as a missionary between 1953 and 1973. A pioneer of vital medical work in the rainforests of this region, she had a major impact long after she left. Through many trials, she lived out her life striving to serve her Lord with every day – and encouraging those around her to do the same.
