Every week a terrorist attack, riot, or political scandal makes the headlines—and we feel the world around us shaking again. We struggle to separate truth from biased statements and hope from naïveté. We wonder how we got here and where these uncertain days will take us.
One of the world’s top investigative reporters, John S. Dickerson, addresses this post-truth, post-Christian society in Hope of Nations.
Hope of Nations shows us how and why the world is changing, where those changes will lead, and what it looks like to live like Christ in today’s society. With fascinating historical and political background, Dickerson helps us understand:
The five major forces driving global change in the world today
Why violent displays of Islam continue resurfacing
The incoming moral, social, and political impact of American millennials
Ten ways to respond biblically to trends shaping the world right now
How to live with Christian courage and compassion in tumultuous times
“Times of great social upheaval are times of great spiritual opportunity,” writes Dickerson. “You can live the adventure of this era with great purpose. You can know with confidence that the Creator of the universe appointed you to bring light and life to this moment in human history.”
Among the youngest award-winning journalists and a seminary-trained pastor, Dickerson brings his reporting skills, generational perspective, and biblical insights to this groundbreaking book.
Get a larger view of what is happening with your community, your government, and your international neighbors in this thoughtful look at global events in light of your unique Christian calling.
My thoughts: This is a thought provoking book that will get one thinking more about what is going on in the world around us. I thought that Dickerson had some great points and interesting thoughts, though I could of had a bit more of an emphasis on the hope part of the title. It is thought provoking and well written.
I received this book from Book look. This is my honest review and is in no way influenced by receiving a complimentary copy.
