“In moving into my calling, there was a combination of being proactive—pushing on doors and exploring options—and also asking God to guide me through his Word, my dreams and passions, the prophetic, and the circumstances I found myself in. In my era, we prayed it through, and then started off; we felt that God could guide us supernaturally during the process. But today it seems harder, and I see more hesitation and concern along the lines of ‘I’m not sure;’ ‘Is this right?’ ‘Am I hearing God?’ I try to encourage young leaders to try things—to go for it. God can speak to us as we go.” --Amy Orr-Ewing [Christianity Today] 08.15.16

The second article, “The Oxford Revivalist,” shifts attention to the UK and to the work of Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics program director, Amy Orr-Ewing. Her story is quite amazing and well worth reading.

(published under the title Is the Bible Intolerant? in North America) which was shortlisted for the 2006 UK Christian Book Awards, and But Is It Real? (USA title: Is Believing in God Irrational). Her most recent publication is Millennials, which she co-authored with her husband Frog . They have also published Holy Warriors: A Fresh Look at the Face of Extreme Islam and Deep. She has contributed to the books Beyond Opinion, God and the Generations and Worth Knowing: Wisdom for Women.
