Silent No More
Albert Mohler, president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, author of several books, and the host of The Briefing podcast (regularly in the top 50 of the iTunes religion and spirituality podcast list), articulates the history of the sexual revolution taking place in the United States in amazing clarity. As uninformed Christians, we may miss the historic significance and the future repercussions of the current shift in our culture and laws. We Cannot Be Silent brings the sequence of events, subtle to those not paying attention, into clear view and shows how there has been a clear agenda in place for decades to change American culture and laws to reflect a new sexual revolution.
From beginning to end, this book is full of clear steps that show the transformation of societies view of sexuality over the past century and how the development of contraceptives, no fault divorce, advanced reproductive technologies, and cohabitation have quickly advanced this change. With a clear agenda, the homosexual revolution advances from vice to virtue even more rapidly.
Aside from the great information, the book is written in an easy to read format, accessible to those of us with little political background information. Clear examples and references to current and historic cases coupled with life experience makes this work feel personal and authoritative at the same time.
Mr. Mohler’s book couldn’t be more timely as the politically charged society continues to make Christianity appear less and less credible. The final full chapter is devoted to answer tough questions that we all face as this storm continues to grow. This chapter alone is worth the price of admission.
With all of that said, I highly recommend this book to everyone, whether you’re struggling to understand the roots of the sexual revolution or you simply want Christian advice on how to respond to those around you that are talking about these issues. So what are you waiting for? Go grab your print or digital copy and get a Christian worldview perspective on this major issue.
Official Book Description
Twenty years ago, not one nation on earth had legal same-sex marriage. Now, access to same-sex marriage is increasingly seen as a basic human right. In a matter of less than a generation, western cultures have experienced a moral revolution.
Dr. R. Albert Mohler examines how this transformation occurred, revealing the underlying cultural shifts behind this revolution: the acceptance of divorce culture, liberation of sex from reproduction, the prevalence of heterosexual cohabitation, the normalization of homosexuality, and the rise of the transgender movement. He then offers a deep look at how the Bible and Christian moral tradition provide a comprehensive understanding upon which Christians can build their personal lives, their marriages, church ministry, and cultural engagement.
Dr. Mohler helps Christians in their understanding of the underlying issues of this significant cultural shift and how to face the challenge of believing faithfully, living faithfully, and engaging the culture faithfully in light of this massive change.
