This volume asks questions such as: has the spirit of idealism departed ^from the collective consciousness without people being aware of it^can it be that, in an era when religion has become one of the most ^prominent features of a culture, people have lost their guiding inner ^light and lofty calling^and if people have become a people of dry bones, can these dry bones ever ^rise up and walk again.^Tony Campolo wants to talk to the reader about the spiritual condition of ^the West, and to examine what has been happening over the last few ^decades. There is a sense of something being lost. But there is a strange ^and mysterious force at work in the world.^This force is a spirit that will give birth to a new and different West, ^with a new and different faith. It has a dynamism that will sweep away the ^lethargy that seems to beset people on every side. It is a spirit that, in ^the words of the Apostle Paul, is "with us, and in us", struggling to ^take form and to fan the dying embers of the Western nations back to life ^again. It is a spirit that will overcome the feeling of living at the ^beginning of the end, and will make people believe that, in reality, they ^are facing a new beginning.^This book is not only about what has been lost. It is also about the "new ^thing" God is doing, and it is an invitation for the reader to be a part ^of it. Other books by Tony Campolo include "The Kingdom of God is a ^Party", "Things We Wish We Had Said: Reflections of a Father and His ^Grown Son", "20 Hot Potatoes Christians are Afraid to Touch", "Seven ^Deadly Sins", "Who Switched the Price Tags", "Partly Right: ^Christianity Responds to Its Critics", "It's Friday, but Sunday's ^Comin'", "You Can Make a Difference", "The Power Delusion", "A ^Reasonable Faith: Responding to Secularism", "Ideas for Action: a ^Handbook on Mission and Service for Young People", "The Success ^Fantasy" and "A Denomination Looks at Itself".
