The Contemporary Christian: Applying Gods Word to Todays World by John Stott

Recipient of a Christianity Today 1994 Critics Choice Award!Recipient of the 1993 Christian Booksellers Association/Europe Book of the Year Award!People today reject Christianity not because they think it is false but because they believe it is irrelevant.John Stott knows otherwise. In this book he challenges all of us to move with the times while standing firmly on the truth of Gods Word. To be contemporary is to live in the present, Stott writes. To be a contemporary Christian, however, is to ensure that our present is enriched both by our knowledge of the past and by our expectation of the future.The challenge, then, is to be both conservative and radical--conservative in guarding Gods revelation and radical in applying that revelation to the realities of the contemporary world: space travel, homelessness, genetic engineering, pollution, war, health care, gang violence, education and more.Opening our eyes to the Word and the world, Stott shows how Christianity can speak effectively and relevantly to the contemporary world. He includes chapters on the human paradox, authentic freedom, mind and emotions, evangelism and social action, the pastoral ideal and dimensions of renewal.For those familiar with Stott, The Contemporary Christian is a must-read book. For those who have not yet benefited from his insight and passion, The Contemporary Christian affords the perfect opportunity to get acquainted with one of the most widely read and respected Christian thinkers at work today.
