Our nation is politically, ideologically, and socially polarized to the point of breaking; confusion dominates every layer of our culture. The church in America is “a letter from Christ” (2 Cor. 3:3), written to our politically cynical, socially insecure, and spiritually skeptical culture. Before the Gospel may become clear in our “post-everything” culture, we must make truth real in our hearts. The purpose of this book is to (1) redefine dualistic frames in the minds of contemporary Christians that separate the “saved” from the advent of God’s healing reign on Earth; (2) relate Christian compassion to a post-secular America; and (3) propose a redefinition of the Christian controlling narrative. Such a revised narrative will light the way for our “restless hearts” so that we, as a nation, may return from exile to restoration and rejoice in the sovereign reign of God in Christ.
