*New* Scripture & Prayer Guide

Everywhere we turn, battle lines are being drawn―traditional marriage vs. gay marriage, pro-life vs. pro-choice, personal freedom vs. governmental protection. Seemingly overnight, culture has shifted to the point where right and wrong are no longer measured by universal truth but by popular opinion. And as difficult conversations about homosexuality, abortion, and religious liberty continue to inject themselves into our workplaces, our churches, our schools, and our homes, Christians everywhere are asking the same question: How are we supposed to respond?

Let David Platt, in the Counter Culture Scripture and Prayer Guide, take you on a thirty-day tour of the pressing issues of our day and how Christ would have us respond to them. This guide includes instructions on how to lead a month-long group discussion about these issues, as well as thirty individual daily Bible readings. Don’t let the winds of this culture push you and your family around. Throughout the next thirty days, take time to build your life on the truth of God’s Word.

The Bible is clear on a number of issues:

  • Who God is—the holy, just, and gracious Creator of the universe
  • Who we are—men and women created in the image of God for our good and for God's glory
  • Who Christ is and what He has done—His life, death, and resurrection
  • What it means to follow Christ—to die to ourselves and to live in Him
  • Why this matters for eternity—heaven and hell are at stake in our response to the gospel

So how do these truths affect how we respond to the social issues of our day—realities such as poverty, slavery, abortion, sexual immorality, the degradation of marriage, the neglect of orphans and widows, racism, and persecution? David Platt believes that the truths of the gospel should compel us to a contrite, compassionate, and courageous personal response to social issues in the culture. Using biblical foundations, practical illustrations, and personal exhortations, this study is a pointed yet winsome call for readers to faithfully follow Christ in countercultural ways. There will be a cost. There will be a reward. Do Christians in the contemporary church have the courage to counter the culture?
