Festo Kivengere

Full Product Description

Kivengere was a man of his age. Neither he nor the churches around him were perfect, but they had experienced God in an unusual way. Our day may demand more accurate theological thinking than his, although we cannot deny that Festo did indeed read deeply, extensively and constantly in very solid theological material.

Yet for all that, Festo Kivengere has a great deal to teach us about personal love for Christ, unflagging belief in the power of the cross to save people and great endurance to the end.

"We read of the breathtaking courage of Festo who, face to face with Idi Amin, pleaded for the lives of innocent souls when that ruthless dictator went on the rampage. This was a saga of grim brutality. It is amazing that Festo survived... Festo’s own conversion is well told and illustrates the power of revival... This book has the added value of providing a much needed balanced overall perspective and understanding of twentieth-century evangelical Christianity in the heart of the African Continent.’ Erroll Hulse, editor Reformation Today.

Festo Kivengere by Frank Retief was published by Evangelical Press in December 2012 and is our 42750th best seller. The ISBN for Festo Kivengere is 9780852348512.

Endorsement

'...Frank Retief's account is concise, gripping, heartwarming and challenging - and not just for Africans. Kivengere's story is a window on the East African Revival. Those who imagine Christianity to be a Western religion should know of it, and see how wrong they are.'

–Dr. David Seccombe, Principal, George Whitefield College in Cape Town

'...As the reader embarks on the adventure of re-discovering the courage and the passion of Kivengere's life, he is constantly reminded of just how the true church of Jesus has always grown: through the passionate reaching of Christ and him crucified!...'

–Rev. Dr. Mark Norman, Rector, St John's Church Queenswood, Pretoria
