Summary

The president of Southern Seminary reveals how secularism has infiltrated every aspect of society and how Christians, equipped with the gospel of Jesus Christ, can meet it head on with hope, confidence, and steadfast conviction.

A storm is coming. Western civilization and the Christian church stand at a moment of great danger. The storm is a battle of ideas that will determine the future of Western civilization and the soul of the Christian church. The forces we must fight are ideologies, policies, and worldviews that are deeply established among intellectual elites, the political class, and our schools. More menacingly, these ideas have also invaded the Christian church.

From threats to religious liberty and redefinitions of marriage and family to attacks on the sacredness and dignity of human life, the perils faced by the West and the church are unprecedented. 

How should Christians respond to this challenge? The Gathering Storm provides the answer, addressing each dimension of culture and showing Christians how to give an answer for the hope that is within them and how to contend for the faith that was once and for all delivered to the saints.

Unhelpful

As an evangelical, I was hoping to find some helpful practices from Dr. Mohler, but instead I found this book to be woefully inept. The whole book seems to be a list of grievances and a call to fight for Christian political policy over all else. It felt like an oversimplification that lacked empathy for those on the other side, created in the reader a dangerous feeling of persecution and fear, and put politics above the gospel.

Prophetic interpretation of the signs of the times

Mohler explains how the culture is becoming more secularistic and its implications for the church.

Great book on Christianity and Government

This book gives great information on the current state of Government overreach into Christianity. I believe every Christian should read or listen to this book. It will wake you up to what is happening to Christian freedoms in America.

Who Can Calm The Storm

A clear description of our liberal times and dangers. The book helps one to see the way through the secular confusion of today to the One who can calm the storm.

maybe better entitled, we cannot be silent, 2nd ed

well written and well documented, but scores high on exhortations at the expense of true actionables.
