Crisis

What's the greatest crisis among Christians today?

I believe it's the loss of faith. Not loss of salvation--but loss of faith in God, in the Bible, in the church, or in Christian beliefs.

Like most individuals, you probably know someone who has left the church or experientially lost his or her Christian faith. Maybe it's even been your own experience. Sadly, many people feel their church isn't a safe place to talk about something like this and, as a result, of the nearly 75 million American adults who say they have made a commitment to Jesus Christ, more than 31 million have quit going to church. Thousands more will join their ranks this week.

If God Disappears drops the guilt and compassionately addresses the personal, practical, biblical, and theological issues surrounding this crisis. Is it really possible to lose ones faith? Why did it seem to happen to so many good people in the Bible? How can you help a friend who is struggling?

This important and much-needed book will show you what to do if you experience a personal crisis of faith, as well as how you can reach out to those who are spiritually drifting. And it will remind you that no matter what you're going through, God is still there to be found.
