This is an unusual book for unusual times. Reading the timeline the author has constructed connects many events most Christians are already aware of and puts them in a format that allows a proper assessment of the flow of history in our time. The scenarios the book presents are a clarion call to wake up to the situation we face and a reminder that our sovereign Lord is at work in all that happens. Julian Mann is assisted by contributions from journalist and author Peter Hitchens, and Andrew Symes of Anglican Mainstream.
As Andrea Minichiello Williams says in the Foreword: This book needs to be read. It won’t take you long. It is fast-paced and in it Julian Mann prompts us to face up to the theological heresies of our time and to confront the cultural apostasy.
How should Christians relate to an increasingly de-Christianised public square where people are either ignorant of, or hostile toward, the worldview of the Bible? What are Christians to do when the Church is marginalised, sometimes heretical and the exclusive claims of the gospel are viewed as bigotry and the moral law in Scripture is seen as repressive and intolerant? In this context Julian brilliantly summarises what many of us have lived through since the turn of the Millennium.
