A moving faith: Life and ministry of Pastor Rodolfo Palmerola Acosta
MetadataShow full item record
""A Moving Faith" appropriately describes the life and ministry of Pastor Acosta. His is a faith and life that not only ―move mountains, but move and touch the hearts of people who have encountered him, listened to his sermons and teachings, and been at the receiving end of his generosity and kindness. The life of Pastor Acosta has continually affirmed what Jesus has so desired for us - abundant life. This book is an honest witness to the invaluable contribution of Pastor Acosta to the lives of many people, the College of Theology of Central Philippine University, the Convention of Philippine Baptist Churches, and the Christian church and ministry, in general. Having been one of the students, and now co-worker of Pastor Acosta in the College of Theology, I can attest that definitely Pastor Acosta is (to borrow some of the words of the writers in this book) ―a pebble dropped into a calm lake, causing ripples in the lives of many; devoted teacher; a profound and thought-provoking preacher; a dedicated and conscientious pastor; a loyal friend; a creative composer and singer. The list goes on, but only one thing is clear: the life that Pastor Acosta lives is so moving and touching that it is worth emulating and honoring. This is one of the reasons for this book project. This is to honor the man who has brought joy, blessings, wisdom, love and even pain to many of us, and who has touched and challenged us to live a life worthy of God‘s calling. Moreover, this book aims to share wisdom and stories that will equip, encourage and inspire many to continue their own journey of faith." from the Preface
