As believers in our culture today, it takes courage to extend kindness, empathy and patience to others. We must continue to step out in faith as we seek to understand and empathize, especially with those who are different than us, standing firm in the face of the backlash it so often elicits.
This book challenges Christians to not be motivated by fear but courage amid our secular, post-Christian world. It helps us to see that God is bigger and better than anything we’re facing and shows us what it looks like to live with hope and excitement in the age of unbelief.
As the gospel begins to spread through acts of power and preaching, it is received with both praise and persecution. In the middle of the persecution, the Church is prayerful and continues to walk in unity.
