“Once Russian society adopted Stalin’s ideology, it destroyed more lives than Nazi fascism. Mao Tse-tung’s Marxist ideology in China also grew out of the post-Christian German academics. The unthinkable genocides and injustices of the last century, the industrial-scale killings and starvations – all have been the work of ideologies. Ideas, embraced by millions on people, lead dramatically to death or to life.”

The Way Back: How Christians Blew Our Credibility and How We Can Get it Back by Phil Cooke and Jonathan Bock
On a dusty hilltop, Jesus once kickstarted his church with a ragtag group of fishermen who called themselves The Way. Truth be told, the builders of Christianity were a bunch of nobodies. They were powerless and flawed and sometimes petty. But they were committed. They were all-in.
Within a remarkably short time, The Way became the world’s most influential religious faith — a force in culture, politics, literature, science, philanthropy, and the arts. Against impossible odds, that group of nobodies astonished the world. Two thousand years later — by any measure — Christianity is retreating on all fronts. The Way has lost its way.
In The Way Back, media and marketing experts Phil Cooke and Jonathan Bock take a hard look at Christians today and reveal that we, as a salesforce, have lost our faith in our product. Where’s the passion, the excitement, and the commitment that two thousand years ago made such improbable and staggering growth possible? The Way Back will inspire and equip you to learn from that wonderful group of nobodies, so that you too can astonish the world once more.
The Great Evangelical Recession: 6 Factors That Will Crash the American Church…and How to Prepare by John S. Dickerson
In 2006, few Americans were expecting the economy to collapse. Today the American church is in a similar position, on the precipice of a great spiritual recession. While we focus on a few large churches and dynamic leaders that are successful, the church’s overall membership is shrinking. Young Christians are fleeing. Our donations are drying up. Political fervor is dividing us. Even as these crises eat at the church internally, our once friendly host culture is quickly turning hostile and antagonistic. How can we avoid a devastating collapse?
In The Great Evangelical Recession, award-winning journalist and pastor John Dickerson identifies six factors that are radically eroding the American church and offers biblical solutions to prepare evangelicals for spiritual success, even in the face of alarming trends. This book is a heartfelt plea and call to the American church combining quality research, genuine hope, and practical application with the purpose of igniting the church toward a better future.
