Review: A Letter to My Anxious Christian Friends
Author David P. Gushee covers many items that are on our minds in his new book, `A Letter to My Anxious Christian Friends. He covers such topics as homosexuality, illegal immigrants, racism, border control, and abortion. His book is a social issues book written to every Christian who tries to love America.
There are many social and political changes in America today. Changes that would have our founding fathers standing on their heads. But, what about today's Christians, where are we? Do we just stand by as our nation makes changes we don't like? What should a faithful Christian do?
The author's purpose in writing this book is to inform Christians. His goal is to help American Christians see our reality more clearly, assess that reality more thoughtfully, and act more faithfully. What makes this book different from all the rest is the author hopes to inject realistic and empowering hope into a culture and Christian climate filled with pessimism. Many Christians have lost hope and need real, authentic, encouragement.
While this book is authentic it does not have lots of footnotes or fancy words that would make it a chore to read. It's more like a fellowship with other Christians. So what can Christians do? They can advocate for what they believe in.
