The Contempory Christian, Applying God's Word to Today's World by John Stott from Intervarsity Press is now available in convenient softcover. John Stott makes a trumpet call to all disciples of Christ to be both contemporary and Biblical. The first means to live and move with the times. The second requires that we retain unswerving loyalty to God's Word. Combining the two is not an easy task. Today people reject Christianity, not because they think it is false, but because they think it is irrelevant. Disciples, he says, can prepare for this task by cultivating a listening ear, embracing both mind and emotions, and finding God's true guidance. In addition, he sympathetically uncovers the emptiness of secular men and women, demonstrating how the church can meet their quests with the truth and grace of Jesus Christ. John Stott is knwon worldwide as a gifted evangelist, preacher, scholar and Christian statesman. Among his books are Basic Christianity, The Cross of Christ, and Romans.
Recipient of a Christianity Today 1994 Critics Choice Award Recipient of the 1993 Christian Booksellers Association/Europe Book of the Year Award People today reject Christianity not because they think it is false but because they believe it is irrelevant.John Stott knows otherwise. In this book he challenges all of us to move with the times while standing firmly on the truth of God's Word. "To be 'contemporary' is to live in the present," Stott writes. "To be a 'contemporary Christian, ' however, is to ensure that our present is enriched both by our knowledge of the past and by our expectation of the future."The challenge, then, is to be both conservative and radical--conservative in guarding God's revelation and radical in applying that revelation to the realities of the contemporary world: space travel, homelessness, genetic engineering, pollution, war, health care, gang violence, education and more.Opening our eyes to the Word and the world, Stott shows how Christianity can speak effectively and relevantly to the contemporary world. He includes chapters on the human paradox, authentic freedom, mind and emotions, evangelism and social action, the pastoral ideal and dimensions of renewal.For those familiar with Stott, The Contemporary Christian is a "must-read" book. For those who have not yet benefited from his insight and passion, The Contemporary Christian affords the perfect opportunity to get acquainted with one of the most widely read and respected Christian thinkers at work today.
