Once upon a time, their was version of the Christian faith the world found irresistible. It was worth living and dying for. Men and women pursued the Christian faith at the risk of persecution, job loss, and eviction from their homes, temples, and society.
That was then, and today we preach, teach, write, and communicate as if nothing changed. We carry on as though "the Bible says it" still settles it.
It's time to pause much of what we're doing and consider the faith lived by our first-century brothers and sisters who had no official Bible, no status, and humanly speaking, low chance of survival.
What made their message so compelling, defensible, and irresistible? What did they know that we don't?
You're about to find out. In this six-session video study, Andy Stanley invites you and your small group to embrace the version of faith that, against all odds, sparked a series of events resulting in the most significant and extensive cultural transformation the world has ever seen. We must embrace this version if we are to be salt and light in an increasingly flavorless and dark world.
