Product Description

Scan the news or scroll through Facebook for even five minutes and you might feel like putting your head in the sand. Culture wars, politics, terrorism, constant connectedness--the world today can be overwhelming.

Publisher's Description

What in the world is going on?

These days the world has everyone spinning. Weekly terrorist attacks. The refugee crisis. Transgender bathrooms. Academic safe spaces. Tensions with Russia. A perpetually uncertain economy. The list goes on. It’s enough to make us crazy… or want to put our heads in the sand.  

But we can’t, because these are our times, and we must face them. So what many Christians are looking for is someone to communicate a way forward—someone who both understands culture and trusts the Bible. Mark Sayers is such a leader, one who "writes from the future." He is a gifted cultural analysist who combines his biblical knowledge, curious mind, and pastoral heart to offer a guide to the times. Strange Days will help Christians slow down, get their bearings, and follow God with wisdom and tact in this wild world.

"Take heart, for I have overcome the world," Jesus said nearly 2,000 years ago. And that’s the message of Strange Days, the message the church needs today.

Author Bio

MARK SAYERS is the Senior Pastor of Red Church in Melbourne, Australia. He is the author of a number of books and is particularly interested in the intersection of faith and culture. Mark is married to Trudi, and they have a daughter, Grace, and twin boys Billy and Hudson.

    Mark Sayers speaks truth by reminding us that, our age is not as modern, unique, and progressive as it believes. Like all ages, it is shaped by the elemental forces (pg 170). This seems to be the running theme in his book Strange Days. Here he tackles our modern-day plights as Christians.

    Sayers discusses culture as we know it and how it came to be so. He suggests how we, as Christians, should live in this modern world.

    Sayers breaks down the book into three main parts. Part one deals with the biblical pattern of chaos. He addresses: the role of media, terrorism, immigration and refugees, corruption and failing institutions, confusing conflicts, cultural wars, political polarization, and disconnection in a seemingly connected world. He ties all of these topics together under what we view as globalization. Part two talks about the historical pattern of chaos and shows us how we can see specific movements from Scripture occurring in our world. Part three concludes this book by looking at how we are called to live in this world while living out our Christian faith and escape from the chaos through living a life in the Spirit.

    This is an interesting analysis of culture, international relations throughout modern times, and the church past and present. Strange Days is a great and relevant read for our times. I really enjoyed the thought process for the response by the church.

    This is a recommended read for all Christians and non-Christians alike, especially those seeking a biblical explanation and understanding of the days that we live in.
