Counter Culture_May Book Club“Welcome to the front lines.
Everywhere we turn, battle lines are being drawn―traditional marriage vs. gay marriage, pro-life vs. pro-choice, personal freedom vs. governmental protection. Seemingly overnight, culture has shifted to the point where right and wrong are no longer measured by universal truth but by popular opinion. And as difficult conversations continue to inject themselves into our lives, Christians everywhere are asking the same question:
How are we supposed to respond to all this?
Do we resign ourselves to pessimism, convinced our society has collapsed?
Or do we reassure ourselves with optimism, confident we will win the culture war?
David Platt shows us a better way: realism and risk.
In this revised and updated edition of Counter Culture, David Platt provides a gospel perspective on issues such as poverty, abortion, sex trafficking, and racism, as well as the legalization of same-sex marriage, the controversial transgender issue, and the overwhelming refugee crisis. Drawing on compelling personal accounts from around the world, Platt presents an unapologetic yet winsome call for Christians to faithfully follow Christ in an anti-Christian age in ways that will prove both costly and rewarding.”
