Given the number of people who've been "saved," you'd think the world was becoming a brighter place. It could be, too, if more people would grasp the joy of losing themselves in service to God and each other. People like Christoph Blumhardt, who, in his quest to get to the essentials of faith, burns away the religious trappings of modern piety like so much chaff. Blumhardt writes with unabashed fervor, but his passion encourages rather than intimidates. His witness influenced theological giants like Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Karl Barth. But Action in Waiting is not theology; it is too blunt, too earthy, too real. Its "active expectation" of God's kingdom shows us that the object of our hope is not relegated to some afterlife. Today, in our world, it can come into its own - if only we are ready.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Blumhardt does something very few of us can do: represent God's cause in the world yet not wage war on the world, love the world and yet be faithful to God. -- Karl Barth
Who else, besides Barth, is so unrelenting in their attack on religion? Yet who else uses the language of faith so straightforwardly and without apology? -- Stanley Hauerwas, co-author, Resident Aliens
Pulse-quickening...Blumhardt reminds us that personal peace is merely the wrapping paper of a more magnificent gift: confidence in the coming of God's kingdom. -- Rodney Clapp
