A Wilderness of Mirrors

Mark Meynell

$28.99

Paperback
Also Available In
:

Despite all our material and technological advances, Western society is experiencing a deep malaise caused by a breakdown of trust. We've been misled by authorities and institutions, by businesses and politicians, and even by those who were supposed to care for us. The very cohesion of society seems tenuous at times.

The church is not immune from these trends. Historically, it has a dubious record when it has wielded power; personally, many of its members are as afflicted by our culture's breakdown as anyone.

In A Wilderness of Mirrors author Mark Meynell explores the roots of the discord and alienation that mark our society, but he also outlines a gospel-based reason for hope. An astute social observer with a pastor's spiritual sensitivity, Meynell grounds his antidote on four bedrocks of the Christian faith: sin, Jesus, the church, and the story of redemption.

Ultimately hopeful, A Wilderness of Mirrors calls Christians to bear witness to Jesus's victory amid a disillusioned world, a world more than ever in need of his trustworthy goodness.
