A Letter to my Anxious Christian Friends - Gushee

A Letter to my Anxious Christian Friends
From Fear to Faith in Unsettled Times

The dedication page of this book sets the tone immediately with: "To every Christian who tries to love America".

If you are a Christian in America today, you know exactly where this book is headed. It is headed to the fall of a great nation, encouragement to the Saints of today, and the promise of a new world to come.

Gushee is new to me, as I haven't read any of his works before. But I am fully on board with his style. And mostly, his message.

This book couldn't have come at a better time in America's history. Our Country has been torn apart from the latest elections. Recessions. Depressions. Lack of moral fiber. Laws protecting the accused but not the victim in crimes.

All the while, Christians are faced with the ever increasing de-Christianization of America. We can't post the 10-Commandments. We can't say the Lord's Prayer in our schools. If we stand up for what we believe in, we're called fanatics. We're ostracized and put down.

So, how does the Christian today stay faithful, and keep his/her eye on the prize Christ set before us without losing the very essence of what Christ taught us?

Gushee brings things to a simple answer. It's always been simple. It's just not the easy road to follow.

But, then, we are told, "Wide is the gate, and narrow the road,". And we must stick to that narrow road that leads to our rewards. We cannot give in to the ways of the world. We must live in the world, but not of the world.

This is a must read for all Christian in America today. A very real eye opener. And a message that lets us know, we are not in this alone.

This book is available in print or Kindle.
