The church in the West is at a critical moment. While the gospel is exploding throughout the global south, Western civilization faces militant assaults from aggressive secularism and radical Islam. Will the church resist the seductive shaping power of advanced modernity?
More than ever, Christians must resist the negative cultural forces of our day with fortitude and winsomeness. What is needed is followers of Christ who are willing to face reality without flinching and respond with a faithfulness that is unwavering. Os Guinness describes these Christians as “impossible people,” those who have “hearts that can melt with compassion, but with faces like flint and backbones of steel who are unmanipulable, unbribable, undeterrable and unclubbable, without ever losing the gentleness, the mercy, the grace and the compassion of our Lord.”
Few accounts of the challenge of today are more realistic, and few calls to Christian courage are more timely, resolute—and hopeful. Guinness argues that we must engage secularism and atheism in new ways, confronting competing ideas with discernment and fresh articulation of the faith. Christians are called to be impossible people, full of courage and mercy in challenging times.

We live in a broken world shaken by assaults, child abuse, earthquakes, ethnic cleansing, inoperable cancer, school shootings–the list is endless. Selfish, evil people seem to prosper, while good and loving people struggle through life. Observers cry out, How can a loving, caring God allow this to happen?
“God alone is sovereign,” responds author Paul Smith. “He has the big picture and is fitting together the broken pieces of His world. Our loving Father assures us that, regardless of how little we comprehend of His strategy or how painful our brokenness, He is weaving together every aspect and detail of our lives for the accomplishment of His great plan and purpose for us.”
And what is that plan? “In all things God works for the good of those who love him” (Romans 8:28). Join Dr. Paul Smith as he shows how God can use the very worst things that occur in our lives to accomplish the greatest and most delightful good things! Includes a Review and Study Guide.
Mission work is not for the faint of heart. We admire those brave souls who leave behind the comforts of home and go to foreign fields to bring the love of Christ to people in need. And sometimes it feels uninspiring to be stuck at home in the day-to-day of parenting when others are out there changing the world, soul by soul.
Shontell Brewer has a message to renew the spirits of everyday moms: they too have a critical calling as the very first missionaries their children meet. In her informal, funny voice, Brewer points out the many unexpected parallels: A missionary may need to learn a foreign language and new customs to understand and communicate with those around her. A missionary has to follow the path God puts before her, sacrificing sleep, comfort, time, and toilets. Sound like any moms you know?
Brewer tackles common challenges from mom-guilt to the temptation to be a martyr to those days when it feels like only a box of cookies and a Netflix binge can restore a sense of peace. But through it all, she shares the truth that there’s more to parenting than potty training and orthodontist appointments. Mothers make the love of Christ tangible and understandable to their children. With determination and a few purposeful steps, moms can embrace their own mission field, leading their families–heart, soul, mind, and strength–to Christ.
