While the imagery employed in the Parable of Rock and Sand is quite effective in affirming the wisdom of hearing and the importance of incarnating the Gospel of Christ…the same imagery can be used to describe the various bodies which profess to proclaim that Good News. Hence the title of this book, authored by the Very Reverend Josiah B.G. Trenham (Ph.D. Dunelm).…What IS NOT discussed in this book is the Rock, Holy Orthodoxy – the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, the Body of Christ (I Cor. 12:27) built by our Lord Himself upon the Rock of the True Faith (Matthew 16:18). Countless volumes have been written about the Orthodox Church, against which the “rain” and “floods” and “winds” of two millennia have beat, leaving Her unscathed, “a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing...holy and without blemish” (Eph. 5:27)…What IS discussed in this book are some of those bodies which, having been established only over the past several centuries, stand upon unstable and shifting Sand. May the Reader find it edifying for mind and salvific for soul!
