Compassionate Confrontation is a compelling look at the cultural challenges facing the twenty-first century Christian. Written in a practical and direct style, the book presents a biblical alternative to the "take back the culture" and "stay out of the culture" agendas that are advocated by well-meaning Christians. It dares Christians to take God's Truth into the public arena where absolutes and Truth have been replaced by speculations and lies. Full of battlefield stories and biblical references, the book presents a balanced look at the American culture and the biblical role of the church within it. The author calls for Christians to compassionately confront a dying world with the life-giving Truth found in God's Word and demonstrated in the lives of true Christians. His passionate, logical exhortation to the church is based on biblical truth, shaped by the teachings of Francis Schaeffer, and tested in the trenches of experience. Jim Evans has been married to his wife, Joan, for thirty-one years. He is the father of four grown children and has two grandchildren. He received his undergraduate degree from Lancaster Bible College and his graduate degree from Palm Beach Atlantic University. He has established two churches, directed a mission to Haiti, and is currently engaged in conference speaking and assisting national preachers in Africa, India, and Eastern Europe. He has also served as a Christian lobbyist in New York, worked as police liaison for the anti-abortion group, Operation Rescue, was imprisoned for opposing abortion, testified in federal courts, and debated with opponents of Christianity on television, radio, and secular university campuses. Over thirty years of ministry experience in the streets, courtrooms, prisons, and churches of America give him an unusual qualification to speak to the issues confronting the church in twenty-first century America.
