If you have been a regular listener of, “The Briefing” you’ll find Dr. Mohler’s newest book to be quite familiar, as he has addressed much of the subject matter on his program. The book offers a fuller fleshing out of the history, and circumstances, that have lead to our current state, as well as a Christian analysis of it.
The chapter titles in the table of contents paint the picture of what you’ll read in the book;
1 In the Wake of a Revolution
2 It Didn’t Start with Same-Sex Marriage
3 From Vice to Virtue: How Did the Homosexual Movement Happen?
4 The Impossible, Possibility of Same-Sex Marriage
5 The Transgender Revolution
6 The End of Marriage
7 What Does the Bible Really Have to Say About Sex?
8 Religious Liberty and the Right to Be Christian
9 The Compassion of Truth: The Church and the Challenge of the Sexual Revolution
10 The Hard Questions
Dr. Mohler takes you step by step, setting the scene with historical information, about how the foundation for this revolution was put in place, so that in the right environment of postmodernism it could explode. follow along step by step, to see how the plan of the enemy has been unfolding for decades. Dr. Mohler cites the work of opponents, and proponents to Christian values effectively, and fairly in this book. He uses their own words in thorough quotations from their published works. You can trace a line from no-fault divorce, birth control, abortion, and now all of the gender issues. As we deal with the consequences of these doctrines of death culture, Dr. Mohler educate and offers a Biblical analysis. He explains what these changes in our culture will mean for us as a nation, and for Christians.
Dr. Mohler also explains what the Church’s response should be in light of our past failures to inform culture. Bad theology, watered down truths, attractional models, moralism, and pragmatism have all gotten us where we are at today. Real love, tells the truth. We have to proclaim the truths of the Bible to the lost. The things that seem difficult are often what are necessary. The gospel is the only hope for the people of this nation. Chapter 10 offers valuable Biblical responses to questions that are already being asked. If you haven’t given these issues much thought and would like to, or if you are a bit confused and don’t know how we got to where we are today, I would recommend reading this book and referring back to it from time to time.
