We have real hope were called to share. But how we share it makes a difference.
Christians today face a dilemma: in a world that seems to reject everything we believe, how do we walk closely with God without caving to pressure or alienating those we hope to reach?
In this eye-opening new book, Chris Hodges provides a solution by examining the life of the prophet Daniel, who persevered in a corrupt culture that closely resembles our ownand emerged as an influential force in Gods redemptive plan. Full of scripture and seasoned with Hodges candid personal insights, The Daniel Dilemma shows us that we can hold firmly to biblical beliefs without becoming obnoxious, insulting, or mad. We can stand strong while loving others well. Because standing for truth isnt about winning the argument; its about winning hearts. And when we learn the secret of connecting before correcting, we discover that we can respond to todays hard questions without compromising grace or truth.
With fresh insights and practical ideas, Hodges encourages Christians struggling with our cultural reality to hold Gods standards high and his grace deepjust as Jesus did, and just as his followers today are called to do.
Chris Hodges is the founding and senior pastor of Church of the Highlands. Under his leadership, Church of the Highlands has launched campuses all across the state of Alabama and has grown to more than 45,000 people attending weekly. He also co-founded the Association of Related Churches, launched a coaching network called GROW, and serves as chancellor of Highlands College, a two-year ministry training college. Chris and his wife, Tammy, have five children and live in Birmingham, Alabama.

Melissa4 Stars Out Of 5So powerfulDecember 29, 2017MelissaQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4LOVE this book. So much good stuff in here. Chris gets to the core of things and gives simple, yet effective ways to stand strong in a world of compromise.
How do we stand for our Christian beliefs yet love others? Im not an expert but I know I have somehow manged to do it in my classroom. One of my students who is very open about his lifestyle tells me my class is his happy, safe place. I didnt create that by preaching at him I created that by being kind and listening to him. He knows what I believe yet he sees that I care about him. I will never condone his lifestyle but I will love him.
Chris gives practical advice how we all can do that.
I have highlighted so much from this book I cant share it all but here are a views quotes:
Truth without grace is mean. Grace without truth is meaningless. Truth and grace together are good medicine.
Worship is not about responsive readings or singing hymns. Worship is surrendering yourself to the power, majesty, and goodness of your Creator, letting God be God even when you dont understand what hes doing or when you disagree.
Love this one: We should really consider whether were willing to give praise to a team of athletes who dont even know us but stay silent before the God who created us. It all comes down to worship.
Theres so much more but I just suggest you pick up the book and give it a read for yourself. I really enjoyed this.
