Jim Cymbala tells of riding out a super storm in his 26th floor apartment in Brooklyn. "That night I saw something I'd never seen before--Lower Manhattan disappeared into the night. The lights that always glowed from the Financial District were gone! The power that physically and metaphorically lit the world had been cut off at the source...It struck me that this could be the perfect metaphor for what is happening to the church in America today."
Storm is a book that will both disturb and enlighten you. It will help you to recognize what is happening and why. Most of all, it will sound a clarion call to all who believe, reminding us that no matter how fierce the storm, God isn't asking us to take shelter under a table while the light and power go out of his church. No, God has given us the gospel of Christ and the Holy Spirit's resources so that we can bring his light to the world. We are called to join Jesus, the one who calmed the winds and invited Peter to walk with him on the water, to let his light shine strong in the blackest night.

The Church today is in the middle of a powerful storm, the intensity of which is likely to increase in the future. Many Christians are bewildered and concerned by what they seea culture thats become increasingly hostile to biblical Christianity and a church whose vital signs are quickly waning.
In Strong through the Storm, pastor and bestselling author Jim Cymbala speaks to every Christian who is concerned about the challenges the church is facing in America today. Using powerful stories of people who have been transformed by Christ, Cymbala offers hope, helping Christians to understand that a life surrendered to Christ will not be easily defeated, even in the midst of growing hostility toward Christians. No matter how much spiritual darkness encompasses the world, the light of the gospel cannot be suppressed.
Some churches are coming at the storm with harsh legalism, but Cymbala explains that the message needs to be grace. We need to understand the spiritual battle we are in and use the right weapons against it, says Cymbala. We are not struggling against the leaders of this world or the people in the battle, we are struggling against our spiritual enemy, and we need to fight with the Word of God, prayer, and the Holy Spirit.
We dont need more church growth programs to turn the church around. Whats needed is a transformation so that the gospel is preached, the Holy Spirit is allowed to lead, and lives are changed.
