Does God really matter for today's Christians? Craig Gay addresses this issue in his The Way of the (Modern) World: Or, Why It's Tempting to Live As If God Doesn't Exist. Gay takes a critical look at the modern world and exposes the foundational worldview of contemporary secular society and the ideas that undergird modern culture. Gay shows how, for Christians, one of the most seductive temptations fostered by these ideas is the temptation toward practical atheism-living as if God does not matter. Practical atheism has become so attractive that even some Christian churches have embraced it. In The Way of the (Modern) World Gay describes in detail the far-reaching consequences of practical atheism and what it will eventually mean for Christians. Yet Gay is not without hope for today's Christians. Arguing for the eviction of certain modern ideas from our churches, he shows that there is a biblically sound way to live in but not of the world.

This telling critique of the modern world not only exposes the foundational worldview of contemporary secular society and the ideas that undergird modern culture; it also shows how, for Christians, one of the most insidious temptations fostered by these ideas is the enticement toward practical atheism. Craig Gay describes the powerful ideas that have built today's modern complex, exposes the deeper assumptions that lie beneath modern values like "freedom" and "progress, " and shows how these ideas can easily lead us to live as though God does not matter. Arguing for the eviction of certain modern ideas from our churches, Gay's work demonstrates a biblically sound way to live in but not of the world.
