It's time for a reality check.
Though many of the signs of the times are disturbing to those of us in the church, we ignore them at our great peril. Changes in belief, culture, marriage and family, media and technology, and mission affect us not only as individuals but also as a body of believers.
Functioning as both a telescope and a microscope, this hard-hitting examination of the future of the church looks into the vastness of the world and into the minute recesses of our hearts. James Emery White calls on us to sharpen our spiritual drive and determination in order to meet the challenges of our day--and the future. He calls us to look beyond the daily conflicts in order to see the much larger battle in which we are engaged, so that we might play our vital role in preserving and growing Christ's church in the coming age.
"James White says The Church in an Age of Crisis is intended to be 'a whirlwind tour of our day that is meant to introduce and provoke.' The author has succeeded. This book is hard-hitting as well as carefully researched. It is also extremely relevant for our day. In twenty-five short and concise chapters, White scans the landscape of the postmodern world we now live in, especially in America and Western culture. This book will serve the church well." -Daniel L. Akin, president, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, Wake Forest, NC
"The Church in an Age of Crisis is more than a survey of the cultural landscape of contemporary America. It is a call to bring Christian values to bear in the marketplace of ideas. With prophetic insight, James Emery White directs the church to be true to its calling--to be salt and light in a dying world." -Alec Hill, president, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship USA
