Item description for Confronting Kingdom Challenges: A Call to Global Christians to Carry the Burden Together by Samuel T. Logan Jr, Peter Jensen & In Whan Kim...
Overview Among the challenges facing the twenty-first-century church worldwide are theological uncertainty, divisiveness among Christians, the rise of paganism and New Age religions, AIDS, sexual abuse and trafficking, evangelizing the world's great urban centers, and responding to ethnic and religious conflict. Clearly, there is no shortage of kingdom challenges. The chapters in this volume, written by some of the leaders of the global Reformed and evangelical church, provide superb analyses of these challenges and offer clear, biblical suggestions for answering them. Through their suggestions the contributors outline what is necessary to be a global evangelical Christian in the twenty-first century. The overarching theme of Confronting Kingdom Challenges is that of burden-sharing. Readers will see that no Christian, no church, no nation need face these kingdom challenges alone.
It takes only one look at today's news page or one listen to the news shows to understand that, clearly, there is no shortage of kingdom challenges for the twenty-first-century church at large, for Christian organizations and agencies, or for us as individuals. In the face of such enormous problems as the rise of pagan world religions, AIDS, sexual abuse and trafficking, urban poverty, and ethnic and religious conflict, what can you and your fellow Christians do?
According to the diverse group of contributors in this book, you can choose to get involved, sharing not only the kingdom burdens but the kingdom opportunities with other brothers and sisters in Christ so that no Christian, no church, no ministry, no nation has to confront these challenges alone. But how can you join in doing the work you are called to do? The superb analysis, biblical solutions, and reality-tested ideas put forth in this book by some of the leaders of the global Reformed and evangelical church will show you.
Coming from the fields of religion, education, medicine, broadcasting, psychology, urban ministry, and missions, these fellow Christians are encountering the challenges daily. Their suggestions will give you a grasp of not only what is necessary to be a global evangelical Christian today but how to respond to the physical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs of others around the world-and perhaps in your own backyard.
