How do we live in a world with its designer religion that allows itself to be tailored to each personality. It gives, but never takes. It satisfies needs, but never asks for repentance. It offers mystery and asks for no service. It provides a sense of something other, without asking us to stand before that other. At the extremes our response will be either to compromise ourselves or alienate ourselves from the world without any contact with it? Through Arturo Azurdia's book we are inspired to be people of the cross who are sent out into to the world to live lives of example.

Connected Christianity is a clarion call to Christians to robustly engage with the world we live in for the sake of the gospel. It calls us to be both Christian AND worldly, surely an unnerving tension when first considered but absolutely necessary if we are to truly reach the lost of this world we live in with the gospel they so desperately need to hear. The Great Commission is your commission. You need to feel the weightiness of it. You need to own responsibility for it. It is not the commission merely of your church's pastor. The work of evangelism is not reserved to one man who stands in front of the people on the Lord's Day, or occasionally goes out into the open air. This is the job and responsibility and privilege of every one who names the name of Jesus Christ. But how do we engage the world meaningfully without compromising the integrity of our Christianity? Is it possible for a follower of Jesus Christ to be both worldly and Christian? These are the questions this book seeks to answer.
