7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door!
10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness.
From one of the most respected statesmen in the African American church comes an inspirational resource that communicates with unbridled passion what it means to speak truth to power. As an influential leader in the contemporary church, for decades Dr. J. Alfred Smith Sr. has demonstrated for "all who have ears to hear" what it means to speak prophetically in the biblical tradition.
Rooted firmly in messages from both the Old and New Testaments, Dr. Smith's compelling book will inform preachers and teachers who aspire to proclaim peace and justice in their ministries. For parents, church members, and citizens, this resource will inspire all who dare to speak the truth regardless of the consequences.
Destined to be a classic, Speak until Justice Wakes seals the legacy of J. Alfred Smith Sr. as one of the country's foremost advocates of prophetic ministry.
