Hope of Nations
Standing Strong in a Post-Truth, Post Christian World
WHO: John S. Dickerson, lead pastor of Connection Pointe Christian Church in Indianapolis.
HE SAYS: “Times of great social upheaval are times of great spiritual opportunity. You can live the adventure of this era with great purpose.”
THE BIG IDEA: In today’s rapidly changing world, it is hard to keep up with the larger view of what is happening on the national level let alone in the international community. This book looks at world events through the lens of where current changes will lead and what it looks like to live like Christ in today’s society.
Part 1, “What Is Happening, and Why?” is a straightforward look at how and why the world is changing.
Part 2, “Where Will It Lead?” is only two chapters long, but this section addresses important subjects: what can and cannot happen, and nine post-Christian trends Christians undoubtedly will face
Part 3 is “How Will We Live?” which emphasizes the importance of being rooted in Scripture, training our children and doing good in the world. Of great help is the list of 10 ways to respond biblically to trends shaping our world.
