Cafeteria Covenant: the voice, the choice, and the challenge
Cafeteria Covenant is a come-back story in many ways. The powerful little book may well be the antidote for those who have been impacted by domestic abuse, hypocrisy and doctrinal error within the evangelical church, as well as those suffering through difficult times in other ways.
Yet, the book is also important for those in church leadership who dare to hope for reform. Well-written, concise and compelling, Cafeteria Covenant: the voice, the choice, and the challenge encourages readers to hear God's voice for themselves. It could well be used for small group study and discussion, providing documentation to more than forty resources.
Dee Marvin Emeigh relates one authentic and compelling story after another of her experiences over forty years. But, far from leaving the reader impounded in bitter despair, Emeigh delivers a message of faith, hope, and love, along with insights into the character and nature of God. Readers will walk through calamity to find love, through devastation to find encouragement to rebuild.
