Abstract:

In this penetrating book, John White exposes the unmistakable proof that most Christians are not only in but of the world. Incisively he "unmasks the church's massive accommodation to the world," as Howard Sneyder observes in the foreword. White shows how, in leaning over backward to make the gospel appealing, we have let the world into the church, adopting attitudes and priorities that demonstrate our divided loyalty. While we strain at gnats like hard rock music and social drinking, we swallow the camels of pride, materialism, hypocrisy, and superficial relationships with each other and God. But Dr. White does more than condemn our compulsive involvement with the world; he outlines workable solutions that can set us free from its trap, calling us to a radical repentance that will not only restore the church to her first love but will make people of the world stop, take notice, and turn to the living God. - back of book.
