A profound exploration of how to hold on to hope when our unchanging faith collides with a changing culture, from two respected Christian storytellers and thought leaders.
"Offers neither spin control nor image maintenance for the evangelical tribe, but genuine hope." - Russell Moore, president of ERLC
As the pressures of health warnings, economic turmoil, and partisan politics continue to rise, the influence of gospel-focused Christians seems to be waning. In the public square and popular opinion, we are losing our voice right when it's needed most for Christ's glory and the common good. But there's another story unfolding too - if you know where to look.
In Gospelbound, Collin Hansen (Editorial Director of The Gospel Coalition) and Sarah Eekhoff Zylstra counter these growing fears with a robust message of resolute hope for anyone hungry for good news.
Join them in exploring profound stories of Christians who are quietly changing the world in the name of Jesus - from the wild world of digital media to the stories of ancient saints and unsung contemporary activists on the frontiers of justice and mercy.
Discover how, in these dark times, the light of Jesus shines even brighter. You haven't heard the whole story. And that's good news.
Collin Hansen and Sarah Eekhoff Zylstra offer a robust message of hope for discouraged Christians in a tumultuous time. Rather than encouraging readers to force a trite smile or bury their heads in the sand, they offer another option-a way that is principled and justice-oriented, full of conviction and compassion. At a time when many are overwhelmed by the seeming decline of Christianity, we need to rediscover the relevance of our historic principles and posture of love toward the world, no matter what is happening around us. Rather than subscribing to a dominant narrative of fear, what would it look like to reclaim our story of sober, joyful hope? Ranging from America's Deep South to the wild world of digital media, from the stories of ancient saints to those of unsung contemporary activists on the frontiers of social justice, Gospelbound shows us how this uncommon hope is already quietly changing the world in the name of Jesus. Real-life examples from today and from the past give readers the tools they need to navigate the current cultural landscape as a hope-filled opportunity for achievable and lasting change.
