Shattering the Darkness: The Crisis of the Cross in the Church Today by Joseph Lapsley Foreman



In the compelling book Joseph Foreman outlines the path which God has sent before him. Not all will be called to follow his exact path. Foreman makes an effective distinction between committing to a social cause and picking up one's cross. They are not necessarily one and the same thing. It will not be rallies, political strategies or demonstrations alone that will deliver the death blow to the evil of abortion. The call is for the church to embrace the cross

The church anticipates spiritually fallow periods. Indeed, the Spanish mystic St. John of the Cross in the 16th century coined the term the "dark night" of the soul to describe a characteristic stage in the growth of some spiritual masters. Teresa's may be the most extensive such case on record. The "dark night" of the 18th century mystic St. Paul of the Cross lasted 45 years; he ultimately recovered. Yet Kolodiejchuk sees it in St. John's context, as darkness within faith. Kolodiejchuk produced the book as proof of the faith-filled perseverance that he sees as her most spiritually heroic act. Two very different Catholics predict that the book will be a landmark. You have taught me to accept it a 'spiritual side of your work' as you wrote-Today really I felt a deep joy-that Jesus can't go anymore through the agony-but that He wants to go through it in me. -to neuner, circa 1961.

Approaching the church from Nevsky Prospect one can see the details of the Southern façade. A mosaic entitled Jesus in Glory decorates the pediment of the small sheltered shrine underneath a kokoshnik. In this mosaic Jesus sits on a throne flanked on either side by St. Alexander Nevsky and St. Nicholas. Work on the cathedral continued for 24 years. By August 31, 1907, the day of the cathedral’s consecration, . thousand square yards of its interior were covered with mosaics, more than any other church in the world. The precious and semi-precious stones used to decorate the church also contributed to its opulence. Its multicoloured marble iconostasis was made in Genoa, Italy, and the best masters in Russia used Siberian gemstones to create its icon cases over a period of 12 years.

Preface by Ruth Bell Graham ... "In the compelling book Joseph Foreman outlines the path which God has sent before him. Not all will be called to follow his exact path, but the issues he raises cannot be dodged if we are to be faithful to our calling to be light and salt in the world. If at times his voice raises blister, perhaps it is because he has seen more clearly than most terrible price of indifference and compromise.

I give you fair warning - don't read this book if you are not willing to be heart-wrenchingly challenged. Foreman makes an effective distinction between committing to a social cause and picking up one's cross. They are not necessarily one and the same thing. It will not be rallies, political strategies or demonstrations alone that will deliver the death blow to the evil of abortion. The call is for the church to embrace the cross. It is the power of the cross that rescues and transforms every facet of life, from marriage to business to politics and so on. Joseph Foreman says this:
"When we get to the heart of it, Rescue is putting God first by obeying Him when He tells us to put others first. Rescue is doing it in a way which sacrifices our benefit and comfort for another's, whether on the mission field, in our churches, in our marriages, in our careers, or at the abortion factories. Rescue is when we physically intervene to protect someone in a way which does not hurt anyone and which causes us to throw in our lot, our reputation, and our future with the one whose life has been declared refuse: we become refuse with him in the name of Christ who became refuse for us."
Shattering the Darkness is one of the most penetrating and relevant messages on the cross that I've read. It draws me back again and again.
