Description

As followers of Jesus, we know that the good news is deeply attractive. But we often fear that to those on the outside, it comes across as irrelevant or even repellent. Sometimes the Christian worldview feels so out of step with everything else going on that we don't know how to share our faith.

However, author Daniel Strange wants to show you that the connections are there—in fact, the longings that our culture cannot help but express are the very ones that Jesus fulfils.

Building on the work of theologian J.H. Bavinck, Dan reveals five recurring themes that our culture can’t stop talking about, or, as he puts it, the “five permanent ‘itches’ that in our work, rest, and play, we have to vigorously scratch.” From TV to books to social media, these are the questions we can't stop asking and the tensions we can't stop wrestling with—and Jesus speaks powerfully into each one.

This book will help you to spot these connections in our culture, excite you about how Jesus makes sense of humankind’s deepest questions and longings, apply them to your own life first and then equip you to speak of him to others in a way that is truly magnetic.

"Dan Strange has written another terrific, down-to-earth book to help believers engage in fruitful conversations with friends about faith." Dr. Timothy Keller, who has also written the foreword to this book.

Dan Strange has written another terrific, down-to-earth book to help believers engage in fruitful conversations with friends about faith.

One of the most gratifying trends today is the revitalization of Christian apologetics. Not all is good, of course. But the present volume is more than good: it is superb. This wonderful book is as ‘magnetic’ as its title. Daniel Strange appeals to us from an astonishing variety of sources: popular culture, world religions, social trends and, of course, the Holy Bible. He never does this boastfully but is always sympathetic and persuasive. Required reading for anyone wanting to know the credibility of the Christian faith in a confusing time.

How can we reach people who think we’re from another planet? This problematic feeling of disconnectedness in evangelism is addressed biblically, wisely and practically by Dr. Strange in Making Faith Magnetic. But he not only gives you helpful direction; he also encourages you in this important work of evangelism, as well. I highly recommend this.
