Joy for the World: How Christianity Lost Its Cultural Influence and Can Begin Rebuilding It
About: Joy for the World.
Can the church regain its cultural influence?
The church in America is losing ground. Unfortunately, our efforts to reverse this trend often seem to do more harm than good. In Joy for the World, Greg Forster explains how the church lost its culture-shaping voice and what Christians can do to turn things around.
This book teaches us that the key to cultural transformation is something that we might not expect: explosive, Spirit-produced joy in God and his gospel.
