Publisher's Summary

Keep Christianity Strange

As the culture changes all around us, it is no longer possible to pretend that we are a moral majority. That may be bad news for America, but it can be good news for the church. What's needed now, in shifting times, is neither a doubling down on the status quo nor a pullback into isolation. Instead we need a church that speaks to social and political issues with a bigger vision in mind: that of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

As Christianity seems increasingly strange and even subversive to our culture, we have the opportunity to reclaim the freakishness of the Gospel, which is what gives it its power in the first place. We seek the kingdom of God before everything else. We connect that kingdom agenda to the culture around us, both by speaking it to the world and by showing it in our churches. As we do so, we remember our mission to oppose demons, not to demonize opponents. As we advocate for human dignity, for religious liberty, for family stability, let's do so as those with a prophetic word that turns everything upside down.

The signs of the times tell us we are in for days our parents and grandparents never knew. But that's no call for panic or surrender or outrage. Jesus is alive. Let's act like it. Let's follow him onward to the future.

    "Terrible formatting-good readings"

    Pro: The reading by Steven B Stevens is very good.
    Con: The formatting is terrible. The Bible is divided into 15 Parts.
    Click on Part 1 (it doesn't say what books of the Bible are included in Part 1). Clicking on Chapters reveals a list if 91 chapters with no indication of what book of the Bible or Bible chapter you will be listening.
    While that type of formatting may be fine for a novel, it is frustrating if you want to choose a particular Bible book or passage.

    "Not bad not great"

    Maybe its because I agree with this author that I wasn't blown away. I found the reader to take abnormally long pauses between some sentences, even on 1.5 speed.
