This book will challenge you about the growing isolation of the church from today's culture.
"This book gives us courage to stand for what is right, good true and without flinching, and to win the hearts as well as the minds by showing selfish love in a selfish society."
From the foreword by Sir Fred Catherwood.
Melvin Tinker is Vicar of St John?s Newland, Chairman of Yorkshire Gospel Partnership, Co-director of Northern Training Course and is a leading member of the Anglican group 'REFORM'. He is a popular author on culture and faith. He is Married to Heather and they have 3 grown sons.
... rooted in Scripture. A challenging read. As Fred Catherwood says in the foreward, it 'gives us courage to stand for what is right, good and tru without flinching, and to win hearts as well as minds by showing selfless love in a selfish society.'
'Bold and perceptive in its exposure of secular society; searching, encouraging and compassionate in its challenge to the church. This is an outstanding and highly readable book which will serve to equip Christians for effective living in today's world.'
Minister, St. Helen's Bishopsgate, London
‘This very readable book is a bridge, over which God's unchanging Truth, revealed in the Bible, travels into everyday life in the 21st century, with all its challenges and problems. ...absolutely on target.'
Past President, The Proclamation Trust, London
"Happy optimists who are convinced all is well with the church in general and evangelicalism in particular should not read this book. They will find it too disturbing. But those who find themselves in anguish over the rising moral vacuity of the culture and in frustration over the tendency of some parts of evangelicalism to reduce Christianity to religious niceness and a self-defined experience of God, will find their minds renewed, their hearts stirred, and their wills strengthened."
