Finding faith in our secular, postmodern world can be difficult. Especially when it appears that the two are mutually exclusive. That's what Dave Schmelzer thought when he was an atheist. However, he did come to faith and now leads a large church in Boston, MA. In the tradition of C.S. Lewis's "Mere Christianity", "Not the Religious Type" explores the reality of faith in a postmodern world, and suggests a new, unexpected way of seeing the world and our place in it.

He even considered himself an atheist for a while. Then he came to Christ, and is now a pastor at the Willow Creek church outside of Chicago, Illinois, known for its strong outreach to the unchurched.

Table of Contents   Excerpt

Description: "They [pre-Christians] were asking questions I wasn't prepared to answer, and they no longer seemed interested in the questions I was prepared to answer." Does this ring true for your efforts at evangelism with postmoderns (pre-Christians)? It was common for author Rick Richardson until he began to truly understand the postmodern mind. But once he understood, God began to work in truly new and exciting ways in Rick's evangelism efforts. Rick began listening to postmoderns, and learning how they viewed various major life issues. He studied postmodern thought, and asked postmodern, pre-Christians what they were looking for in spirituality. Now he knows where postmoderns are, and what is necessary to help them experience God's love. And you can too, by reading Evangelism Outside the Box.

Table of Contents   Excerpt

Description: In recent years, countless Christians have found evangelism a difficult and even baffling scriptural mandate. Those we encounter, particularly young people, are often entirely unfamiliar with the basics of the gospel. Traditional means of communicating the faith, from cold-calling to mass-mailings, simply no longer speak the language of the culture. Brad Kallenberg recognizes that evangelism, even in our own backyard, has become a cross-cultural task. Like missionaries serving in foreign countries, we must become "students of the host culture." Much more than a "sinner's prayer," conversion requires a change of social identity. Indeed, becoming a follower of Christ involves gaining fluency in the language of Christianity by "engaging in an entirely different form of living with others, and treating evangelism as a communal practice." If we expect to be heard, we need to understand the philosophical underpinnings of our society; we must, in Kallenberg's words, learn to "sing the gospel story in a postmodern key."
     


 
The Gospel in a Pluralist SocietyThe Gospel in a Pluralist Society
Lesslie Newbigin
Retail Price: $25.00
CBD Price: $17.49

Description: How does the gospel relate to a pluralist society? What is the Christian message in a society marked by religious pluralism, ethnic diversity, and cultural relativism? Should Christians encountering today's pluralist society concentrate on evangelism or on dialogue? How does the prevailing climate of opinion affect, perhaps infect, Christians' faith? These kinds of questions are addressed in this book by Lesslie Newbigin. A highly respected Christian leader and ecumenical figure, Newbigin provides a brilliant analysis of contemporary (secular, humanist, pluralist) culture and suggests how christians can more confidently affirm their faith in such a context.
