Publisher's Description

Si siente que la cultura está cambiando justamente debajo de sus pies y es incapaz de volver de nuevo sobre la marcha, USTED NO ESTA SOLO...

Muchos de nosotros vemos las poderosas corrientes subterráneas de la historia que están teniendo lugar frente a nuestros ojos y, ante ello, como respuesta, algunas personas se hunden en la angustia mientras que otras luchan desesperadamente por mantenerse firmes en su fe.

Sí, la cultura está a la deriva, pero la presencia, la verdad, la gracia y el poder de Dios no han cambiado en absoluto.  El es tan real, tan fuerte y tan amoroso como siempre lo ha sido.  Incluso en épocas aterradoras, podemos aprender a estar enfocados en la dirección de Dios para nuestras vidas.  El es el 'verdadero norte', y Él nos guiará.

El pastor 'Choco' De Jesús ofrece una esperanza real y soluciones prácticas. Él identifica claramante las presiones de la cultura, reconoce nuestra tendencia humana de ir a la deriva y proporciona el estímulo bíblico de 'mantener el rumbo' en nuestro caminar con Dios.  Combinando historias poderosas con una agudeza y percepción sorprendentes y sólidos principios bíblicos, el pastor 'Choco' nos da la mano, no solo para redescubrir el camino de Dios, sino para recorrerlo a través de los buenos y los malos tiempos, y nos ayuda a estar siempre cerca de nuestro Padre celestial.

Practical guidance for Christians on being truth and light in a world that increasingly views biblical truth as intolerance and hate.

Many people today are afraid and angry.  The ground under them is shifting, and they feel powerless to do anything about it.  Some look at the massive cultural changes, and they shrug.  That's no big deal.  In fact, we need to keep in step with the culture.  Go along to get along.  Others have an opposite reaction: they fight back in an impassioned, shrill voice that alienates those who disagree with them. Still others withdraw from the contentious arguments because they assume, What's the use? My voice means nothing.  But there's another path--to engage the people and the problems in our culture with a blend of humility and strength.

The paradox of faith is that the deeper we go into the deep waters of the tenderness, love, and grace of God--the fact that the king of glory loved us enough to become a servant to pay for our sins and make us his own--he increasingly puts steel in our souls so we can engage the difficult issues in our culture with wisdom, kindness, and courage. Like the culture, we tend to drift--toward disillusionment or self-sufficiency.

We need God's grace and truth to penetrate deep into our hearts, and we need each other, to stay the course.  In our culture, "people truth " are often seen as judgmental and intolerant (and these labels may indeed fit), but Pastor Choco is known for his compassion as well as his unswerving commitment to truth. Stories from  his life and his church will be woven throughout this book.
  • Each chapter includes questions to stimulate personal reflection and group discussion.
  • A group leader's guide is included in the appendix
