The White Flag: When Compromise Cripples the Church
These are troubling times. We live in a day which is marked by theological error and apostasy. Leaders are falling, truth is routinely maligned, and compromise is celebrated. A glance across the cultural milieu reveals an unfurled white flag. The white flag has been hoisted high and a diabolical deal has been struck. This flag reveals a horrifying reality which must be addressed, namely – final surrender in the church.
The White Flag: When Compromise Cripples the Church diagnoses our current condition and offers biblical action steps for marching forward in a way that glorifies God. It is a call to faithfulness in an age that is characterized by weak knees, passivity, and capitulation. It instills courage in weary Christ-followers who toil in a post-Christian era.
“Here is a passionate call from a pastor’s heart, from a man widely read, who sees with great clarity the difficult situation the church now faces, with opposition without and weakness and compromise within, who believes the battle will be won by the faithful believing and by the courageous teaching and proclaiming of the Word of God.”

“In every generation, believers are called to contend earnestly for the
faith, and pastors must act as watchmen on the wall, protecting the
flock from danger. David Steele does exactly that in The White Flag.
This book is overwhelmingly biblical, meticulously thorough, and
refreshingly practical. Frankly, I love books like this; books that inform the mind and stir the soul!”
Pastor, Harvest Bible Church, Gilmanton, NH
Author of Reviving New England and Why We’re Protestant
“Dr. David Steele exposes a clear and present danger threatening our
churches. This is a biblical, bold, urgent call-to-arms reminding us
that our Commander-in-Chief has entrusted to us a “Precious Treasure” that must be protected as well as proclaimed.”
Senior pastor, Homestead Country Gathering, La Grande, OR
“David Steele is a champion for the truth of God’s word. The White
Flag not only exposes the destructive enemy of doctrinal compromise
that threatens the contemporary church; it inspires godly courage in
all believers to stand firm in defending the truth of Scripture no matter the cost. Read this excellent book to be blessed and emboldened
by its timely message.”
