Abstract:

"The idea of giving one's testimony often evokes summer church camps, evangelistic revivals, mission trips and baptisms. Like an eyewitness called to testify in a courtroom, sharing a testimony of faith is for specific people at special moments. But what if our view of testimony is all wrong? According to Amanda Drury, testimony is an essential practice that forms our present and future identity. Testimony changes us, and without it we risk having a stunted and stale faith. Recent studies reveal a staggering inability of adolescents to articulate their religious beliefs. Now more than ever, churches need to recover the practice of testimony as an integral part of communal worship."--Back cover.
