God has nothing to do with the real business of life. In the big picture, he's irrelevant. This is what Professor Craig Gay calls "practical atheism"---The Way of the (Modern) World---and it's corroding almost every aspect of our society. So how can a Christian survive in such a godless environment without losing faith? Gay presents a biblical strategy for standing firm, helping you to live a righteous life in the world but not of the world. 340 pages, softcover, Eerdmans.
Does God really matter for today's Christians? Craig Gay addresses this issue in his The Way of the (Modern) World: Or, Why It's Tempting to Live As If God Doesn't Exist. Gay takes a critical look at the modern world and exposes the foundational worldview of contemporary secular society and the ideas that undergird modern culture. Gay shows how, for Christians, one of the most seductive temptations fostered by these ideas is the temptation toward practical atheism-living as if God does not matter. Practical atheism has become so attractive that even some Christian churches have embraced it. In The Way of the (Modern) World Gay describes in detail the far-reaching consequences of practical atheism and what it will eventually mean for Christians. Yet Gay is not without hope for today's Christians. Arguing for the eviction of certain modern ideas from our churches, he shows that there is a biblically sound way to live in but not of the world.
