Who God is—the holy, just, and gracious Creator of the universe. Who we are—men and women created in the image of God for our good and for God’s glory. Who Christ is and what He has done—His life, death, and resurrection. What it means to follow Christ—to die to ourselves and to live in Him. Why this matters for eternity—heaven and hell are at stake in our response to the gospel.

 

So how do these truths affect how we respond to the social issues of our day—realities such as poverty, slavery, abortion, sexual immorality, the degradation of marriage, the neglect of orphans and widows, racism, and persecution?

 

David Platt believes that the truths of the gospel should compel us to a contrite, compassionate, and courageous personal response to social issues in the culture. Using biblical foundations, practical illustrations, and personal exhortations, this study is a pointed yet winsome call for people to faithfully follow Christ in counter cultural ways. There will be a cost. There will be a reward. Do Christians in the contemporary church have the courage to counter the culture?
