Prophetic voices

The Church of England - - LETTERS -

Sir, Barry Sut­ton-Jones raises a very im­por­tant is­sue about lead­er­ship (let­ter, 28 Fe­bru­ary) con­cern­ing the ex­cep­tional floods and storms that have caused wide­spread hard­ship. He states: “There has been no prophetic voice... in our cur­rent woes ... where are our bish­ops and arch­bish­ops? ... silent - as usual!”

I too feel deep dis­ap­point­ment that the Church of Eng­land I love, so of­ten fails in its duty to give strong spir­i­tual and moral lead­er­ship we so badly need to­day.

How­ever, there is one prophetic voice that speaks up for the church and na­tion: The Rev Dr Clif­ford Hill, known in­ter­na­tion­ally as a preacher, lec­turer, broad­caster and writer, with a schol­arly Bi­ble per­spec­tive.

Dr Clif­ford Hill is as­so­ci­ated with ‘Is­sachar Min­istries UK’. He has just writ­ten two pow­er­ful pa­pers: Storms over Bri­tain - Who is to Blame? and Is there a Mes­sage?.

Dr Clif­ford Hill is a godly man and I com­mend his prophetic min­istry.
