We’ll be discussing Good Faith: Being a Christian When Society Thinks You’re Irrelevant and Extreme, by David Kinnaman and Gabe Lyons
Discussion led by Mr. Mark Davis, Headmaster at Covenant Day School
Many Christians today feel overwhelmed as they try to live faithfully in a culture that seems increasingly hostile to their beliefs. Politics, marriage, sexuality, religious freedom – with an ever-growing list of contentious issues, believers find it harder than ever to hold on to their convictions while treating their friends, neighbors, coworkers, and even family members who disagree with respect and compassion. This isn’t just a problem that affects individual Christians; if left unaddressed, the growing gap between the faithful and society’s tolerance for public faith will have lasting consequences for the church in America.
Readers will discover the most significant trends that offer both obstacles and opportunities to God’s people, and how not only to challenge culture but to create and renew it for the common good. This will be the go-to book for young adult and old believers who don’t want to hide from culture but to engage and restore it.
