Product Description

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.

Publisher's Description

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.

Editorial Reviews

"It is the work of man who has felt deeply the burden he expresses. And he conveys his vital message with all warmth, enthusiasm and seriousness that is characteristic of him as a man. No Christian who reads these messages can be in any doubt of the Lord's demands for his or her life, nor of the provision made for him or her in Christ."
"Christians always need help living in the world while they do not belong to the world. Art Azurdio seeks to do just this."
"This book will give to us clarity and direction for the Christ-centered and Gospel-driven as well as holy spirit empowered answers from the Word of God. You will want to read this...probably more than once."
"WARNING: Arturo Azurdia's Connected Christianity will make people uncomfortable. Despite the warning (or because of it) by all means read this book, slowly and prayerfully."
