Publisher's Summary

The church in the West is at a critical moment. While the Gospel is exploding throughout the global South, Western civilization faces militant assaults from aggressive secularism and radical Islam. Will the church resist the seductive shaping power of advanced modernity?

More than ever Christians must resist the negative cultural forces of our day with fortitude and winsomeness. What is needed is followers of Christ who are willing to face reality without flinching and respond with a faithfulness that is unwavering. Os Guinness describes these Christians as "impossible people", those who have "hearts that can melt with compassion but with faces like flint and backbones of steel who are unmanipulable, unbribable, undeterrable, and unclubbable, without ever losing the gentleness, the mercy, the grace, and the compassion of our Lord".

Few accounts of the challenge of today are more realistic, and few calls to Christian courage are more timely, resolute, and hopeful. Guinness argues that we must engage secularism and atheism in new ways, confronting competing ideas with discernment and fresh articulation of the faith. Christians are called to be impossible people serving an impossible God.

    "A Timely and Timeless Challenge"

    This is my first book on Audible. I don't think I could have picked a better book to start with. Os just get better with time. His ability to communicate the challenge of the Church in our day is only matched by his biblical clarity of divine mission for God's people for all times. This is one that EVERY Christian should read. It may have been unfair for me to give only 3 stars for the "performance" considering the fact that I listened at 1.25 speed. It was just too slow at the normal rate.
