In a world that seems to be fast spinning out of control, we unfortunately see some churches and people who believe they are Christians that seem to have no moorings to which they are anchored. We live in perilous times, especially for churches that do not hold fast and firm to the foundational truths taught in Scripture.
Pastor Erwin Lutzer has written a new book and study guide, The Church in Babylon. Its message is timely and will hopefully spark a study in God’s Word that will encourage believes to know what God says and choose to live in light of truth found in Scripture.
Topics include Finding God in Enemy Territory, Keeping the Faith in a Hostile Work Environment, Courage to Confront a Deadly Enemy, Calling out the Lies of the Culture, and Prayerless Pulpits, Satisfied Saints and Spiritual Blindness.
The Church in Babylon is thought provoking. The study guide includes some good questions for people to examine their knowledge of Scripture and compare it secular culture’s views. I appreciate that Pastor Lutzer is uncompromising to the truth that God gave us in the Bible and that he reinforces his arguments with Scripture. More and more the church will face pressure and disapproval from a culture that is guided by feelings, not facts. Pastor Lutzer doesn’t shy away from controversial topics that are affecting our culture and making their way into our churches.
Until I started reading the book, I didn’t realize it was just the study guide for The Church in Babylon. Even as study guide, it was very good. I’m sure I would like the book even more.
I recommend Erwin Lutzer’s new book and study guide, The Church in Babylon. I would like to thank Moody Publishers and NetGalley for the opportunity to read The Church in Babylon Study Guide in exchange for an honest review. I was under no obligation to give a favorable review.
The Church in Babylon by Erwin Lutzer will be published August 7, 2018.
