Counter Culture Bible Study includes a small-group Bible Study Book, DVD teaching from the author with six 30-minute sessions, and the book on which the study is based.
The Bible is clear on a number of issues:
- Who God isthe holy, just, and gracious Creator of the universe
- Who we aremen and women created in the image of God for our good and for Gods glory
- Who Christ is and what He has doneHis life, death, and resurrection
- What it means to follow Christto die to ourselves and to live in Him
- Why this matters for eternityheaven and hell are at stake in our response to the gospel
So how do these truths affect how we respond to the social issues of our dayrealities such as poverty, slavery, abortion, sexual immorality, the degradation of marriage, the neglect of orphans and widows, racism, and persecution?
David Platt believes that the truths of the gospel should compel us to a contrite, compassionate, and courageous personal response to social issues in the culture. Using biblical foundations, practical illustrations, and personal exhortations, this study is a pointed yet winsome call for readers to faithfully follow Christ in countercultural ways. There will be a cost. There will be a reward. Do Christians in the contemporary church have the courage to counter the culture?
