Book Description:

Sacrifice is a term of the past, not of today. Today, no one is expected to sacrifice anything. We are surrounded by game shows that give you riches if you answer a few questions on general knowledge or guess the right box to open. The unspoken spirit of the age is 'if something is difficult, do something else instead. If something is expensive, borrow it or borrow the money to buy it'. What place does 'sacrifice' have in this world? The Bible says it is central - and that sacrifice is not only a vital key to the future, it is the essence of a Christian's life, today. That is what Helen explores in this new edition of the classic Living' series. If you pick up this book anywhere and start to read it, you won't be able to put it down as she skilfully weaves stories of sacrifice together with Christian teaching on the subject.  God does have a right to demand our sacrifice - with all our heart, soul, mind and strength - and it is our privilege to respond to that demand.  If those words sound alien to you then you may not have yet entered into the joy of Christian belief and service. The key to an authentic life is sacrifice.

Helen Roseveare has led an incident-filled life as a medical missionary. A best-selling author, she is still active in writing and in demand for international conferences on mission and faith. Her other books in the Living series are Living Faith , Living Holiness, Living Stones and Living Fellowship.


Dr. Helen Roseveare went to the Congo in 1953. She has dedicated her life to serving others even in the deep trials of life. She pioneered vital medical work in the rainforests of what is now the Democratic Republic of Congo, and is an internationally respected speaker with WEC ministries.


As I read the books of Helen Roseveare, these powerful words come to my mind -  REALITY, VISION, INTEGRITY, COURAGE, ACTION and FORGIVENESS. They are all words that we need to hold centrally in our lives too. Perhaps you don't read many books but I would urge you to read this one - and then to share what you've learned with others. They are a huge challenge to the indifference and lukewarm-ness of our day. It is necessary for the church to have IMPACT for the good of this world. Helen shows what kind of impact you too can have.   ----George Verwer
