Sinners in the hands of an angry church : finding a better way to influence our culture by Dean Merrill( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If America is sliding into a moral swamp, what's the best Christian response? The hardball approach of the religious right? Or is there a more productive way to engage our culture?"--BOOK JACKET. "Dean Merrill, a former vice president with Focus on the Family, challenges us to transform society - and our own hearts - from the inside out. Sinners in the Hands of an Angry Church is about attitude, about living out our convictions in a Christ-like manner instead of bullying our way into the system like any other loud and selfish government lobby."--BOOK JACKET. "Merrill shows why returning to the "good old days" is a wish based on a myth. He reveals how God has worked mightily throughout history in spite of decadent cultures, and how he can and will work today in the American culture. Far from a prescription for apathy, this book is a passionate call to kingdom activity - and our mission as ambassadors to a world Christ died for, not as conquerors who would remake it in our own image."--Jacket
