    Book Review by Jim Firnstahl

    Gabe Lyons is the founder of Q and author of several books in this genre.

    In “Next Christians” Lyons asks us to acknowledge that in America, the Christian faith, which has long enjoyed mainstream status, is now that of a sub-culture; one of many influences on the culture. “Pluralism rather than Christianity now marks America’s public square.”

    The author believes this “new normal” demands a rethinking of our focus. Our Christian mission of living the Gospel in this reality requires us to become “restorers” of men and women and their society. Mr. Lyons offers “seven characteristics that will set the next Christians apart.”

    Insightful and helpful for Christian marketplace leaders.

    Why do 9 out of 10 children raised in Christian homes leave the Church? Why do many professing Christians show little or no evidence for their faith? Why do 80-90% of those making decisions for Christ fall away from the faith?

    For decades, the world’s most popular gospel message has been drawing the lost by promising God’s wonderful plan for their life. But behind the facade of the “wonderful plan” message is the reality of the trials, temptation, and persecution that Jesus promised. How can we reconcile the two?

    In this life-changing book, best-selling author Ray Comfort explores whether this common gospel approach aligns with real life — and with Scripture. The vital biblical principles he reveals will force you to re-examine your ideas about the gospel — and will teach you how to reach unbelievers the way God intended. A must-read for all who care about the lost.

    Book Review by Jim Firnstahl

    Professor Kallenberg (Religious Studies at the University of Dayton) wants us to understand that “evangelism has become a cross-cultural task.” Essentially we must learn to “sing the gospel story in a post-modern key.”

    This well written book helps Christians come to grips with this sub-culture status and offers practical ways to communicate and live the gospel in this environment. Practical for all Christian leaders in the church and marketplace.
