Welcome to the front lines.
Everywhere we turn, battle lines are being drawn - traditional marriage vs. gay marriage, pro-life vs. pro-choice, personal freedom vs. governmental protection. Seemingly overnight, culture has shifted to the point where right and wrong are no longer measured by universal truth but by popular opinion. And as difficult conversations about homosexuality, abortion, and religious liberty continue to inject themselves into our workplaces, our churches, our schools, and our homes, Christians everywhere are asking the same question: How are we supposed to respond to all this?
In Counter Culture, New York Times best-selling author David Platt shows Christians how to actively take a stand on such issues as poverty, sex trafficking, marriage, abortion, racism, and religious liberty - and challenges us to become passionate, unwavering voices for Christ. Drawing on compelling personal accounts from around the world, Platt presents an unapologetic yet winsome call for Christians to faithfully follow Christ into the cultural battlefield in ways that will prove both costly and rewarding.
The lines have been drawn. The moment has come for Christians to rise up and deliver a gospel message that's more radical than even the most controversial issues of our day.

This book has helped refined my stances on these very tricky topics! He puts scripture as the MOST IMPORTANT in dealing with these issues. The love he expresses in all of these topics is shown brightly! This is a must read or listen for anyone living for Jesus!
This book will either get you mad or become ready to stick you neck out and begin to be hated for staying true to the holiness of God. Believers, time to make a choice to get out of comfort and walk as a disciple in a way that is abiding in His holiness!
This book gives a very practical approach to standing up for your faith amidst today's cultural conflicts that turn even many Christians from Christ. Each topic is set up as a description of the pastor's beliefs on the topic, followed by a practical application of how you can live it out in your own life, as well as specific bullets to pray on that topic. Highly recommend.
