Publisher's Description

With a voice of reason and grace, pastor Caleb Kaltenbach challenges the church to choose the path of hope in response to polarizing cultural issues that are straight from the front pages of today’s newspapers.
      Divergent politics, immigration issues, bullying, re-defining family, racism, terrorism, new ways of categorizing people, and multiple other issues are negatively impacting our communities today. Some feel the country we live in now isn't the same one they lived in twenty years ago. Culture is consistently changing, and many Christians are nervous about what tomorrow will bring.
      However, we don't need to worry, because we serve the God of tomorrow. Culture will always change, but God never changes. God owns tomorrow. He has been in tomorrow, prepared tomorrow, and will walk with us into tomorrow. He will help us handle our ever-shifting culture as we journey forward.
      Every cultural issue we deal with today is something that Jesus dealt with in his day. The issues are the same, they just look different. Yet Jesus trusted the God of Tomorrow and knew that he was in complete control. Because of his trust in God, Jesus engaged culture in a very intentional way, and we can do likewise.
      God of Tomorrow includes discussion questions at the end of each chapter, providing a great platform for small groups to dialogue about these culturally-relevant topics.

Editorial Reviews

"Caleb Kaltenbach lets us know that even if today looks bleak, our future is right with God. God never changes and in no way will abandon us, yet he chooses to transform us and revolutionizes his world through us. Thank you, Caleb, for reminding us that our good God is here now and is going to be here tomorrow."
—Kyle Idleman, best-selling author of Not a Fan and Grace Is Greater

"We have no idea how much rises and falls on our ability to love people. God of Tomorrow gives us perspective to love others well, no matter what—not only because everyone matters to God but also because we matter. And love is the only path to freedom."
—Kristen Ivy, executive director of messaging at Orange and founder of the Phase Project

"Jesus told us to love our neighbors, because He knew that love changes everything. If you want to be challenged to love, invest in, and serve your neighbor, then I can’t recommend God of Tomorrow more highly."
—Reggie Joiner, founder and CEO of Orange

"In an age when most voices seem extreme and debate is highly polarized, Caleb brings a needed sane, faithful perspective. He will show you how to keep your heart and mind engaged in a culture that you might not like but still need to love."
—Carey Nieuwhof, founding pastor of Connexus Church and author of Didn’t See It Coming

"More than anything else, what our chaotic and complicated world needs is hope. Caleb Kaltenbach reminds us that Jesus is the only place where hope is found and encourages us to live so that others might see hope within us."
—Russell Moore, president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention

This well-written book is an essential guide for navigating the changes of life and culture with grace and truth."
—Jud Wilhite, senior pastor of Central Church and author of Pursued

"The best thing about our God is that he’s the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. This work, shaped by Caleb’s unique life experience and per­spective, is an important conversation for ’such a time as this.’ Thanks, Caleb, for taking the deep dive into hard conversations!"
—Tyler Reagin, president of Catalyst

"Rather than any words we say, it’s how we treat people that communicates God’s love. God of Tomorrow will help you show people the love of God."
—Carlos Whittaker, author of Kill the Spider

"I love Caleb’s disarming style of delivering tough, enduring truths. He is an authentic voice for this generation."
—Dennis Rainey, cofounder of FamilyLife, a Cru ministry

"In a growingly divisive world, the church is at a crossroads. Caleb’s work provides a powerful and hopeful way forward that every Christian needs! In fact, the future influence of the church might just depend on whether or not we choose to apply the road map provided by God of Tomorrow."
—Clay Scroggins, lead pastor of North Point Community Church and author of How to Lead When You’re Not in Charge

"Kaltenbach is a voice of hope for Christians struggling to remain at ease despite the uncertainties of today. I affirm his gracious reminder to Chris­tians that the future is relentlessly and eternally hopeful, regardless of politi­cal and social upheaval. God of Tomorrow propels Christ followers to trust in God, who never changes and never ceases to watch over his people."
—Barry H. Corey, president of Biola University and author of Love Kindness
 
"Hurting people don’t need clever advice or another self-help book—they need the gospel! They’re desperate to know the God who cares, is in control, and has a plan for their lives. In God of Tomorrow, my friend Caleb gives us tools so we can point to the Savior who gives us a future and offers hope."
—Dr. Jack Graham, pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church

"For people of faith, tomorrow can be confusing when colored by the changing world we live in today. I’m thankful that Caleb Kaltenbach has given us another must-read book that practically and biblically helps us navigate the chaos of today and restores genuine hope for tomorrow."
—Gene Appel, senior pastor of Eastside Christian Church

"How do we as imperfect people offer hope to a broken world? Caleb urges us to look beyond ourselves. If we focus on God’s power and plan of re­demption, we’ll discover renewed courage to share hope."
—Mike Foster, author of People of the Second Chance

"Combining solid biblical content with a pastoral heart that engages the cultural issues of the day, Caleb provides hope and encouragement for fol­lowers of Jesus amid the challenges our culture presents to faithfully living out biblical convictions. This is a calm and well-reasoned voice that is much needed today.
—Scott B. Rae, Ph.D, dean of faculty and professor of Christian ethics at Talbot School of Theology, Biola University

"The world is broken and people are hurting. Though society doesn’t al­ways offer healthy solutions, Jesus followers have what’s needed. In God of Tomorrow, my friend Caleb reminds us that God’s promise to redeem em­powers us to be people of joy with a message of hope."
—Gabe Lyons, founder of Q Ideas and author of Good Faith

"I don’t know many people who’ve been through as much uncertainty and change as my friend Caleb. If your tomorrow looks similar, you need to devour this book."
—Ashley Wooldridge, senior pastor of Christ’s Church of the Valley
 
"Caleb Kaltenbach has a unique perspective on culture and faith. From the roots of his story in Messy Grace, he has forged a foothold in both worlds that enables him to embrace reality without abandoning hope.

—Lane Jones, executive director of multisite ministry at North Point Ministries

—Jason Romano, former ESPN producer and author of Live to Forgive

—Jared C. Wilson, director of content strategy at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and author of Supernatural Power for Everyday People

"As Christians our priority should be clear: share Jesus by relentlessly loving people, no matter what. This should happen more often, but too many of us fight against or fear society. In God of Tomorrow, my friend Caleb helps us discover courage to share hope with people who so desperately need it."
—Dr. Tim Harlow, senior pastor of Parkview Christian Church and author of Life on Mission

"In this winsomely unique book, anchored in the antique truth of Scrip­ture, my friend Caleb Kaltenbach reminds us that God is not popping Tums over tomorrow. He is in control, so we need not fear. We can actually rejoice. What a refreshing book!"
—Bryan Loritts, lead pastor of Abundant Life Christian Fellowship and author of Saving the Saved

"At a time when the world appears to be drifting further and further from the things of God, Caleb Kaltenbach has thoughtfully written an encour­agement to us that, no matter what happens, God is not surprised or afraid. Our peace comes from knowing that God is the same yesterday, today, tomorrow . . . and forever."
—Dudley Rutherford, senior pastor of Shepherd Church and author of Compelled

"Caleb Kaltenbach’s new book is a breath of fresh air for a culture chok­ing on the failed philosophies and empty promises of those who have no clue about the future because they don’t know the God of tomorrow."
—Barry L. Cameron, senior pastor of Crossroads Christian Church and best-selling author of The ABC’s of Financial Freedom

    For years, Ive been told to live in the present. The past is over, and theres nothing we can do to change it (although at some point we might have to make some major apologies and amends over some of our poor choices). And the futurewell its not here yet, so why waste a lot of time worrying about something that may or may not happen. (That is not permission to not plan ahead, just a caution about excessive futuristic, unfounded fear.)

    Then here comes Caleb Kaltenbach, reminding us that we have permission, and are even encouraged to have hope for the future. God of Tomorrow: How to Overcome the Fears of Today, and Renew Your Hope for the Future (Waterbrook, 2018), teaches us that if we truly believe that God holds tomorrow, and will care for us, then we can have hope. If we have hope, then we can share that belief and that hope with others. Its amazing how we can let our hearts be broken by the things that break the heart of God, and come out better on the other side.

    I imagine that the God of Tomorrow Principle: Since tomorrow belongs to God, we can graciously offer hope to people today springs from the authors personal life. This principle, according to Kaltenbach is what he believes that Jesus would have you remember, as opposed to regretting the past and fearing the present and the future.

    The book is full of life lessons that apply to most people, and even if we think were doing pretty well along the lines of having, living, and sharing hope, there is something in this book for almost everyone.

    I received an uncorrected proof from the publisher in exchange for a review.

    Pleased to rate the book 5/5

    God Of Tomorrow: How To Overcome The Fears Of Today And Renew Your Hope For The Future, written by Caleb Kaltenbach, published by Waterbrook, is a book that strives to help its readers surrender to God.

    We live in the age of the unknown. Will we have a job tomorrow? Will we be able to retire one day? Will we be able to provide for our families? Will we be able to take a vacation? These are just a few of the unknowns that we deal with, sometimes on a daily basis. These unknowns can cause great havoc within our lives, thus we must be able to find a way to walk through them and into tomorrow.

    In this book, Caleb tries to help his readers remove all of the concern they have been focusing on concerning that which is unknown and instead place their trust and hope in God, who is already present in their tomorrows.

    This publication has the power to guide its readers into a greater position of trust, believing that God will never leave nor forsake them in their time of need, thus it is a recommended purchase.

    God of Tomorrow: How to Overcome the Fears of Today and Renew Your Hope for the Future, by Caleb Kaltenbach, tells its readers how to set aside fears of the future. The future sometimes brings good news, and other times it destroys our dreams.

    This book addresses how to face the future in an unstable society. It describes how people of the Bible faced many of the same issues in their time that we do today. Some of the points made in the book are as follows: Since tomorrow belongs to God, we can graciously offer hope to people of today. Christians are supposed to be people who make a place for anyone, even those who dont seem as though they belong somewhere, because God made a place for us. Loving God and loving our neighbor are inseparable actions. And lastly, You might not be able to walk a mile in another persons shoes, but you can get a picture of his journey.

    This book discusses ways to trust God and work through fears of the future. I would recommend it for anyone who has such fears or knows someone who does.
