This book tells the story of the life of two remarkable nineteenth-century citizens. Their work, which was an expression of their Christian faith, contributed to the building of the economy of the colony of NSW and the Kingdom of God in NSW and beyond. They were deeply involved in the founding and/or development of the Presbyterian Church, the Sydney City Mission, Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children, YWCA, YMCA, AMP, PLC, St Andrew’s College and much more. They were prominent in the rescue of prostitutes, caring for consumptives and the development of a defence force.
Burning or Bushed examines the life of the Presbyterian Church of Australia and how it has fared in the 40 years since the momentous events of Church Union in 1977. It was from a burning bush that Moses was addressed by God. Is the Presbyterian Church still like that burning bush, a place where God is found to be speaking and calling people to serve him? Has it gained increased clarity of purpose since 1977, and is it giving a clear and effective witness to the revelation of God in Jesus Christ? Or has it lost its way? Is it bushed and directionless, worn out and waiting to pass away? Or is it still on fire for the Lord and his work? This book of essays seeks to address these questions.
