By Seth Kaper-Dale,Allen Verhey

within the decade after Sep 11, Rev. Seth Kaper-Dale did what preachers have been doing all throughout America—he entered the pulpit and attempted to assert Jesus Christ because the risen person who is ushering in a renewed and restored state, whilst it appeared that such a lot of countries and certain curiosity teams have been claiming energy and authority. Over the process a decade a few of the sermons at once addressed the nice matters via mirrored image at the biblical narrative. occasionally that interplay led to the congregation being moved by means of religion to go into the fray and to deal with matters comparable to warfare, common failures, sexual orientation, financial disparity, immigration reform, interfaith concerns, and ecological catastrophe. in brief, whilst the Bible met the massive matters in congregational house and time, the church used to be remodeled in Spirit and made prepared for actual action.

In thirty-four sermons that cross from pre-emptive warfare to the Arab Spring, Seth insists that not anything that occurs in actual heritage lies open air the world of theological mirrored image, and that there's not anything a congregation can't delve into as soon as it has noticeable why the actual country message of Jesus Christ is superior than the other power.

“There are a few this day who declare that the preaching of sermons is passé. Seth Kaper-Dale’s new booklet proves them flawed. those winsome sermons convey the facility of the gospel whilst the biblical textual content, expertly understood, intersects with the problems of our modern tradition. Insightful exegesis of either biblical textual content and sleek international unearths expression in eloquent prose to offer voice to a Micah-like ardour for justice. take in and read.”
—Steven Bouma-Prediger, professor, wish university, Michigan

“The prophet Jeremiah writes, ‘There is a fireplace in my bones and that i can't carry it in.’ Seth writes with an urgency that you just feel he feels deeply. He writes with a good stability among scriptural integrity and a social/political research. His biblical insights problem our ethical and moral behavior in a damaged international. it truly is glaring that his preaching is moved to name us to non-public conviction and communal responsibility.”
—Andres S. Fierro, pastor, Reformed Church in America

“Probing and encouraging, this publication is for a person who wonders the place the prophetic and demanding voice of the gospels has long gone. during this age of drone struggle, accelerating monetary inequality, and coming near near weather disaster, we want Kaper-Dale’s capacious imaginative and prescient of justice greater than ever.”
—Colin Jager, professor, Rutgers college, New Jersey

“Here at Princeton, i haven't assigned a sermon as analyzing fabric for any of my faith courses—until, that's, I learn A Voice for Justice. This yr I’ll use , one on interreligious hospitality and the opposite on immigration. For unblinkered and unblinking preaching within the Reformed culture, addressing the tumult and turmoil of the USA this present day, Kaper-Dale will get to the guts of the problems, prophetically.”
—Richard Fox younger, professor, Princeton Theological Seminary, New Jersey

Seth Kaper-Dale is co-pastor of the Reformed Church of Highland Park, New Jersey, along with his spouse Stephanie. as well as conventional pastoral tasks Seth has began a church-based cheap housing company, group improvement companies, and a tremendous immigration ministry (which incorporated delivering sanctuary to 9 asylum seekers for plenty of months).
