Product Description

These days, fear dominates conversations. Bader-Saye points out the consequent temptations---to make safety our first priority, elevate suspicion to a virtue, even manufacture or exaggerate "threats" for personal gain. In his newly revised and updated text, he encourages Christian communities to trust in Jesus and take the risks necessary for practicing hospitality, peacemaking, and generosity. Includes discussion questions. 208 pages, softcover from Brazos.

Publisher's Description

Fear has taken on an outsized role in our current cultural and political context. Manufactured threats are advanced with little to no evidence of danger, while real threats are exaggerated for self-interested gain. This steady diet of fear produces unhealthy moral lives, leading many Christians to focus more on the dangers we wish to avoid than the goods we wish to pursue. As a fearful people, we are tempted to make safety our highest good and to make virtues of suspicion, preemption, and accumulation. But this leaves the church ill-equipped to welcome the stranger, love the enemy, or give to those in need.

This timely resource brings together cultural analysis and theological insight to explore a Christian response to the culture of fear. Laying out a path from fear to faithfulness, theologian Scott Bader-Saye explores practices that embody Jesus's call to place our trust in him, inviting Christian communities to take the risks of hospitality, peacemaking, and generosity. This book has been revised throughout, updated to connect with today's readers, and includes new discussion questions.
