Summary

In a time of compromise and disillusionment, God is calling his people to a movement of beautiful resistance.

We live in a time when our culture is becoming increasingly shallow, coarse, and empty. Radical shifts in the areas of sexuality, ethics, technology, secular ideologies, and religion have caused the once-familiar landscape of a generation ago to be virtually unrecognizable. 

Yet rather than shine as a beacon of light, the church often is silent or accommodating. This isn’t a new phenomenon. During World War II, pastor and theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer was deeply troubled by the compromise in the German church. Their capitulation to the Nazi party brought shame and dishonor to the gospel. In response, he helped create an underground movement of churches that trained disciples and ultimately sought to renew the church and culture of the day. 

In our compromised church, we need new underground movements of discipleship and resistance. Widely respected New York Pastor Jon Tyson unveils a revived vision for faithful discipleship - one that dares to renew culture, restore credibility, and replace compromise with conviction. 

For all who have felt this conflict in the soul between who we are and who God calls us to be, Beautiful Resistance is a bold invitation to reclaim what’s been lost - regardless of the cost.

This audiobook includes a study guide as a bonus PDF

Praise for Beautiful Resistance:

Beautiful Resistance is one of the most compelling and defiant books I’ve read in a long time. I love Jon’s radical, no-messing vision of the church as a prophetic community. This is a wake-up call for us all from the heart of a man who lives his message, loves his city, and serves his Lord with a passion and intelligence destined to become less rare.” (Pete Greig, founder of the 24-7 Prayer movement)

A must listen for every person in pastoral ministry today!

After 20 years of church leadership and pastoral ministry, this book was a god sent ‘shot in the arm’ of courage, conviction and elevating call. Thanks Jon for another inspiring, practical and deeply anchoring work for the heart, mind and soul of ‘the worker’. I am liberally suggesting this book to everyone I know where I paid ministry or not. A must read/listen! (Ryan TerMorshuizen - Cape Town, South Africa)

Timley and Beautiful

A calling for all Christians to live authentically like Jesus in this crazy world we find ourselves in these days. You can hear Jon's heart across each page and will be inspired to see people and circumstances through the lense of Jesus. Humble, thoughtful, and genuine.

Clear

Jon Tyson is winsome and incisive for the disillusioning cultural moment we find ourselves in. If you want to know the heart of Jesus for the church in America amidst the noise and polarization today, read this. Another great entry from one of the most compelling voices in the church right now.
