Does it feel like the end of the world? The apocalypse? The world is changing in a rapid pace; It seems like every week there is a terrorist attack, riot, mass shooting or political scandal satiating the headlines—and we feel the world around us shaking… again. We find ourselves fighting to separate the truth from biased statements and hope from childish narrative. We ask, “how did we get here,” and “where do we go from here?”
One of the world’s top investigative reporters, John S. Dickerson, has an answer for our post-truth, post-Christian society in Hope of Nations. And it points to the end of the world as we know it, but we can learn to stand strong in this post-truth, post-Christian world.
Hope of Nations shows us how and why the world is changing, where those changes will lead, and what it looks like to live like Christ in today’s society. With fascinating historical and political background, Dickerson helps us understand:
- The five major forces driving global change in the world today
- Why violent displays of Islam continue resurfacing
- The incoming moral, social, and political impact of American millennials
- Ten ways to respond biblically to trends shaping the world right now
- How to live with Christian courage and compassion in tumultuous times
Here’s a little background on the Enemy’s plan for the end of the world.
“Times of great social upheaval are times of great spiritual opportunity,” writes Dickerson. “You can live the adventure of this era with great purpose. You can know with confidence that the Creator of the universe appointed you to bring light and life to this moment in human history.”
Among the youngest award-winning journalists and a seminary-trained pastor, Dickerson brings his reporting skills, generational perspective, and biblical insights to this groundbreaking book.
