The Market-Driven Church

Crossway / 2004 / Paperback

Stock No: WW45098


Product Description

"In God we trust." "God bless America." In no other country are Christianity and God so obviously part of the culture. There are street signs directing people to local churches. Politicians attend prayer breakfasts and schoolchildren proclaim the country "one nation under God." Yet, it seems that the church has become more like the culture than the culture like the church.

As a European with strong American ties, Udo W. Middelmann expresses both his great admiration for America's historically strong ties to Christianity and his grief over what is happening to the church under the influence of modern culture. Church attendance is often a choice governed by convenience and pleasure, and Bible knowledge is reduced to personal edification, spirituality, and private interpretation. Middelmann urges a reversal of these trends and presents a convincing message about the dangers of settling for the mere trappings of Christianity while ignoring the life-changing and culture-changing influence of the Bible.
