Mission and Growth are the watchwords of much of our contemporary church thinking. In this volume Dr. Red fern provides a series of meditations on the Letter to the Hebrews that reveal it to be a valuable resource for contemporary mission, and a manual for using the gifts God provides through Jesus for growing His Kingdom among us, as relevant today as in the First Century.Dr. Red fern shows that, through the great themes of this Letter, intuitions are crystallized, confidence strengthened, and effective life-giving witness made possible. Faith becomes the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
