Reappearing Church: The Hope for Renewal in the Rise of Our Post-Christian Culture

Book Overview
What if the rise of secularism is good news for the church? For decades, we set our hopes on technology, politics, and the appearance of peace. We wanted to believe we were headed somewhere better--that progress was happening. But now as our technology ensnares and isolates us, our politics threaten to tear us apart, and our cultural decline continues to accelerate, people are understandably distressed. But throughout history these periods of decline traditionally precede powerful spiritual renewal--and even revival. What if all the bad news in this world is actually good news for the church? Discover why there's reason to be wildly hopeful and how to prepare yourself and your church to be a part of renewal now and in the future.
Editor Reviews
From the Back Cover What if what looks like decline in the church is actually the beginning of a spiritual reawakening? For decades, we Westerners set our hopes on technology, politics, and the appearance of peace. We wanted to believe we were headed somewhere better--that progress was happening. But now as our technology ensnares and isolates us, our politics threaten to tear us apart, and mass violence becomes alarmingly normative, people are understandably distressed. But throughout history these periods of decline traditionally precede powerful spiritual renewal--and even revival. What if all the bad news in this world is actually good news for the church? Discover why there's reason to be wildly hopeful and how to prepare yourself and your church to be a part of renewal now and in the future.
