Today's Amazing Winter Read - "Storm - Hearing Jesus For The Times We Live In"
Author: Jeuel Pavitt Date Posted:16 July 2021
Description: Jim Cymbala believes the church in America is in the middle of a powerful storm.
Many Christians feel bewildered, disheartened, and concerned by what they see - a culture thats become increasingly hostile to biblical Christianity and a church whose vital signs are quickly waning. Like a storm surge that accompanies a major hurricane, powerful forces have come together to create a surge that's threatening the health of the church.
Half of the young people who have been born into the church have left it, political issues have created profound divisions among believers, biblical literacy is on the wane, most churches are shrinking and pastors are fleeing the pastorate at the rate of 1500 a month. Yet most of the church in America is asleep, unaware of the rising tide of problems within the church itself.
Storm is a book for every Christian who is concerned about the challenges that face believers today. Using powerful stories of people who have been transformed by Christ, Jim Cymbala strikes a note of encouragement and hope: he helps Christians to remember that a life surrended to Christ in the midst of a church transformed by His presence can never be defeated.
