It’s tempting to believe that the Christian faith is alive and well in our country today. Our politicians talk about God. Our mega-churches are filled. Christian schools dot our landscape. Brace yourself. It’s an illusion. Believe it or not, only 8 percent of Americans profess and practice true evangelical Christian faith. There are more left-handed people than evangelical Christians in America.
In this book, Mark Driscoll delivers a wake-up call for every believer: We are living in a post-Christian culture—a culture fundamentally at odds with faith in Jesus. This is good and bad news. The good news is that God is still working, redeeming people from this spiritual wasteland and inspiring a resurgence of faithful believers. The bad news is that many believers just don’t get it. They continue to gather exclusively into insular tribes, lobbing e-bombs at each other in cyberspace.
Mark’s book is a clarion call for Christians. It’s time to get to work. We can only do this if we unite around Jesus and the essentials found in his Word, while at the same time, appreciating the distinctives within each Christian tribe. Mark shows us how to do just that. This isn’t the time to wait or debate. Join the resurgence.
Driscoll's book urges various Christian factions to end their quarrels and unite around a common appreciation for God and Christ. Narrator Chamberlain reads the author's broadside with a great deal of conviction. His narration is crisp, clear, and impassioned. And while his performance has verve, Chamberlain often sounds excessively nasal. Additionally, during more intense moments of the book, the narrator becomes overly aggressive. Some listeners will long for a more moderate performance and more vocal variety to temper Driscoll's rhetorical fire. A Resurgence hardcover.

A book well researched and presented. One of the most insightful books I have read recently. Loved the church history included.
Appreciate God using Mark
Love what God is doing at Mars Hill, most critics of Mark don't take the time to watch his sermons to get what he is really about and that's sharing the gospel. He is a faithful preacher of the word!
