There Is a Season: Authentic, Innovative Ministry in Popular Culture (Paperback)
Seize the opportunity for innovative ministry.
An uneasy feeling has crept into the hearts of many Christians: a sense of being powerless in the face of rapid change, of disconnectedness from contemporary culture, and of living in a world of increasing chaos. Children and parents live according to different mental maps, justice appears irrelevant in court decisions, truths that were once considered "absolute" have dissolved, and moral standards have become as stable as quicksand.
What is happening to Western civilization? We are experiencing a "culture quake" that is creating new demands on faith and the church. In this hard-hitting, revealing book, author and pastor Chuck Smith, Jr. explains this cultural shift in clear, compelling ways, demonstrating why old religious structures and systems lack meaning for post-modernists and mapping out new strategies for church ministry and personal faith witness.
There is a Season will do more than open your eyes to what's going on around you. It will prepare you to be a vital member of a current Christian movement that will change the world.
