+  Bringing our Best in a World that Rejects Us (full hour)

  • Description: You may have seen the story of John Chau, a missionary who went to the isolated North Sentinel Island off the coast of India, hoping to evangelize a tribe there that has been out of contact with civilization for thousands of years. Chau was killed, and the way the West has reacted to his death is a telling point on how our culture views Christianity and Evangelism. Ed Stetzer joins us to discuss this story and evangelizing in a new age of outrage.

    • Christians in the Age of Outrage: How to Bring Our Best When the World Is at Its Worst

      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.
