Jack Hayfordu2019s highest priority today is to help the helpers strengthen the leaders and nurture the shepherds of the Body of Christ both pastors and laymen. A Letter to the Church speaks to this large circle of leaders and workers who care for the people of God and desire to advance His kingdom. Written with love and concern urgency and care this fresh-from-his-heart book both affirms and confronts. It recognizes the unique pressures felt by leaders and workers today and calls for an overcoming church. In a prophetically passionate tone Hayford communicates what the Spirit is saying to the Church today. He calls for leaders and workers to be remolded as clay in the Masteru2019s hand reassessing their life patterns with a determination to make them durable and fruitful. He calls all followers of Christ to what he describes as u201cdeep calling unto deep.u201d This prophetic heart-cry begins with u201cThe Kingu2019s Manifestou201d in which Hayford unfolds Jesusu2019 call for us to be passionate not passive. Hayford then writes about u201cThe Creatoru2019s Foundationsu201d which reveals how the law actually leads to grace. In a section called u201cThe Crucible of Sufferingu201d Hayford affirms Paulu2019s words to the Corinthians a reminder of true breakthrough comes with a price-tag which often means persecution pain or suffering. This all leads to u201cThe Flame Keeperu2019s Warningsu201d in which Hayford reminds us all that triumph will come but only on Christu2019s terms not our own. When we allow ourselves to be consumed by the Holy Spirit we then overcome hinderances have the deepest impact and eventuate Godu2019s highest Praise and Christu2019s greatest glory. A Letter to the Church is a much-needed manifesto for today.
