Holy Fire Publishing releases Between the Call and the Crown (Paperback, US$14.99, ISBN#978-1-60383-143-7). MacDonald I.J. Mopho writes in-depth look at how God uses trials to accomplish His call in the persevering Christian, as He used David's trials to fulfill his call to be King of Israel.
Mopho's Between the Call and the Crown details practical steps to receive God's call. Be prepared--know that God's anointing often entails testing; be courageous--focus on God, not on problems; pray for wisdom--choose whom to share confidences with in uncertain times; and carefully handle offenses and offenders, recognizing that trouble can fulfill God's calling in one's life.
"Most people are fascinated by the Holy Bible story of David. Because it bears a series of insurmountable sufferings and trials that could very easily stifle the human will and courage, to fulfil one's ambition and calling. However, in a manner that defies pattern but demonstrates consistent faith in God and the difference it can make, David surmounts what for many would be the insurmountable, time and time again. David's story is one of the best lessons for many who genuinely want to overcome the difficulties and the things that threaten them from being what they should be…God is working out his purposes for you, and how your victory [will] be orchestrated, if you persevere in faith." -- MacDonald I.J. Mopho
"In this in-depth study of the chequered career of David, the shepherd lad chosen by God to become the king of an emerging nation, the author gives valuable insight into the long and difficult routes by which God continues to train the faithful for leadership through the challenges and power struggles of the contemporary political and business world. It can be read with profit by both Bible students and preachers." -- the Rev. Ian Gardner, co-translator and editor, The Abuan Bible, Nigeria
"Undoubtedly, MacDonald's spiritual development, as a result of his commitment to God's word, coupled with his willingness to wait on God and listen to His voice, have helped to produce this book. He is sharing with us - the readers - what the Holy Spirit has taught him privately. He has touched theology and some important doctrines, such as the Sovereignty of God and Suffering, in a very balanced way." -- the Rev. Emmanuel O. Dampare, Pastor, Clapton Christian Centre, London
