Publisher's Summary

Are you tired of reading another news story about Christians supposedly acting at their worst?

Today there are too many examples of those claiming to follow Christ being caustic, divisive, and irrational, contributing to dismissals of the Christian faith as hypocritical, self-interested, and politically co-opted. What has happened in our society? One short outrageous video, whether it is true or not, can trigger an avalanche of comments on social media.

Welcome to the new age of outrage.

In this groundbreaking book featuring new survey research of evangelicals and their relationship to the age of outrage, Ed Stetzer offers a constructive way forward. You won’t want to miss Ed’s insightful analysis of our chaotic age, his commonsensical understanding of the cultural currents, and his compelling challenge to Christians to live in a refreshingly different way.

A Balanced Look at an Unbalanced World

This book had a very real chance to go off the deep end and contribute to the very thing it discussed but Ed Stetzer does a great job of looking at both sides of the outrage with a calm, mature, and Christian heart to encourage the church to act like Jesus. Stetzer looks at how Christians are reacting on social media, in our interactions with those of whom we disagree, and the causes we champion and asks if our stands are based off of Christian love or because we are afraid of losing our idols and place of standing in a post-Christian world. Every chapter is thought-provoking. There are numerous times I was forced to look at myself and see if the way I present myself in the digital world does a disservice to my testimony to an unbelieving world.
It is not enough to be kind and thoughtful. We must be loving, even when we disagree, because disagreement cannot be a dividing wall that tears us apart as it is currently happening. We must look beyond disagreement and see each other as image-bearers of the one and true God.
If you come angry to this book, please put the outrage aside and examine your motives and actions to see if God is speaking to you through this book. I highly recommend it for those who interact with others in a social media-driven world.

Christian Facebook posters and Twitter users....

This book will disciple you to Godly consideration of Social Media origination and response to others. It is to your benefit (and mine) to understand biblical perspective on how these new tools can be changed confidently used for the Glory of God.
