Jesus in the Secular World

"The Church is irrelevant to my day-to-day life! It's just a dead, empty tradition of the past."

According to Pew Research, the religiously unaffiliated are the fastest growing “religious group” in the U.S.

There is an ever-widening cultural divide between the secular youth culture and the Church. Much of what was formerly regarded as the Christian world is leaving its roots behind and is dominated by secularism and relativism. The bible is no longer considered the moral compass, but rather everyone is free to decide for themselves what is right and wrong.

AS FOLLOWERS OF JESUS, IT’S CLEAR THAT WE NEED TO RESPOND TO THIS. BUT HOW?

Jesus in the Secular World by Ben Pierce

Jay Barnes“By reading this book, you'll be challenged - challenged to pray like never before, challenged to courageously tell others why you love Jesus, and challenged to go beyond your comfort zone to places where lost people live. I encourage you to join Ben and his family on this journey.”
Jay Barnes, President, Bethel University (Saint Paul, Minnesota - USA)
Ted Esler“Defying our categories of missionary focus, the growing globalization youth movement is presenting an entirely new “tribe” for the church to engage. We must sharpen the tools of contextualization, deep cultural understanding, language learning, and incarnational ministry, to love these people into the Kingdom. Ben Pierce lays out the challenges of this tribe, while showing how the church can walk through the holes that secularism is burning in the hearts of these precious people.”
Ted Esler, President of Missio Nexus
