This eye-opening little book addresses several key trends that are storming the church in this media-mesmerized millennium: The increasing use of entertainment and amusement to teach the Word of God-and expanding efforts to make the Gospel message more "seeker-sensitive"; The advancing cause of ecumenism over evangelism-and the resultant confusion between Catholicism and biblical Christianity; The multiplying effect of doctrinal error through increasingly popular paraphrased "Bibles" and the proliferation of visual interpretations of Scripture.
After screening Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ, T.A. McMahon set about writing a book evaluating the enthusiasm generated for the film among evangelicals. The movie was touted as the greatest opportunity for witnessing since the death of Christ. Could that be true? Or could the church be enthralled with something that might have a host of problems beyond just a popular motion picture about Jesus Christ. Tom observed a connection between The Passion and trends taking place among professing Bible believers such as the increasing use of entertainment in presenting the gospel, the ecumenical relationship between Catholics and Evangelicals, the use of imagery verging on idolatry, and the major drift away from the objective Word of God in favor of the subjective, "feelings" oriented treatment of the Scriptures.
