Revolutionary Love by Festo Kivengere
“Revolutionary love” sounds like an oxymoron. Revolution is usually a negative, violent and destructive change, while love is positive, peaceful and contented. But true love always changes people. and Christ’s love brings the most revolutionary change of all. Festo Kivengere (1919-1988), an Anglican Bishop and AE’s East Africa Leader, experienced both kinds of revolution. He escaped Uganda under threat when the brutal regime of Idi Amin had him in its sights. But he could not escape the pursuit of Jesus, who came into his life with transformative grace. In this book, Festo tells his story of learning to freely receive Christ’s love and freely share it with others.
