Description

Christendom is dead. But maybe that’s a good thing...

The Christian culture that has underpinned Western society for centuries has been eroded. We're now at the point where to disagree with people on issues such as marriage and sexuality, is seen as hateful. Christians are no longer seen as honorable, but as bigots. But history testifies that the more people try to destroy Christianity, the more it grows. So we are entering an exciting period of time because we’re back in the place where Christ’s church can thrive - at the margins of society.

In this stirring, passionate book, Matt Chandler shows us we need Christian courage like never before, and how to live with compassion and conviction, able to look around positively and reach out confidently.

It encourages us not to be thwarted by fear, but to depend on God and have confidence that Christ will build his church, despite continual marginalization. A must-read for any Christian who wants to understand how to stand firm and walk forwards in an increasingly secular culture.

Commendations

This is a much-needed reminder that gospel Christianity thrives when it is out of power, and that Christian courage comes from trusting not in cultural power but in God’s power and grace.

Timothy Keller

Founding Pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, Manhattan; author of Making Sense of God

Matt is a voice I trust. In times of significant cultural shift in the world, we need courage. Instead of walking in fear and making false proclamations about the church’s mortality, we must brace ourselves for a deeper sense of commitment to courageous engagement. Pick up this book to get pointed in the right direction, and walk in commitment to strategic courage in this time of shifting uncertainty.

Eric Mason

Founder and Lead Pastor, Epiphany Fellowship, Philadelphia

For many of us, these seem hard days indeed to be a Christian. But by reminding us of the church’s long, rich history and of God’s strong, constant love, shows us that even in this difficult age, believers have every reason for courage and to be of good cheer.

Karen Swallow Prior

Author of Fierce Convictions: The Extraordinary Life of Hannah More: Poet, Reformer, Abolitionist

Customer reviews

“Exciting introduction, great interest in reading, need encouragement at this time.”

Will be looking to purchase multiple copies to give to family and friends. A much needed word of encouragement in today's culture.

“The “simmer down - it’ll be okay” book ”

This is an easy read, yet very insightful book. I’ve heard the argument many times from those around me in my parents small country town - “America is a Christian Nation!” When, in reality, it’s not. America is a melting pot of different cultures and beliefs. Matt brings that mind set front and center in this book.

I think it’s a great book for my 17 year old to read so I’m going to pass it along to her as well.
