During a time of compromise and disillusionment, God is calling His people to a movement of beautiful resistance.
Our culture is becoming increasingly shallow, course, and empty. Radical changes in the areas of sexuality, ethics, technology, secular ideologies, and religion have changed the once-familiar landscape of a generation ago to become virtually unrecognizable.
Instead of being a beacon of light, the church is often silent or accommodating. This isn't some new phenomenon. During World War II, pastor and theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer was deeply troubled by the compromise in the German church. Their capitulation to the Nazi party shamed and dishonored the gospel. In response, he launched an underground movement of churches that trained disciples and ultimately sought to renew the church and culture of the day.
In our age of compromise, we need new underground movements of discipleship and resistance. Jon Tyson, widely respected New York pastor, reveals a revived vision for faithful discipleship, one that dares to renew culture, restore credibility, and replace compromise with conviction.
For those who have felt this conflict in the soul between who we are and who God calls us to be, Beautiful Resistance is a bold invitation to reclaim what's been lost, regardless of the cost.
