The first generation of Christians turned the world upside down. But the church today is being turned upside down by the world. Why? And why aren't we--with all our social medias and high-tech gadgets--more effectively producing Christ-centered, Gospel-liberated, biblically-instructed, world-tilting believers?

In The World-Tilting Gospel, popular blogger Dan Phillips lays out four reasons why the first believers had more impact on their culture than today's church has on contemporary society. Using a whole-Bible approach to the Gospel, Phillips shows who we really are, what kind of world we are really living in, who God really is, and what difference the Gospel really makes in our everyday lives. Drawing from decades of studying the Bible's Hebrew and Greek texts, Dan Phillips offers a conversational and engaging challenge to embrace a biblical worldview--and hang on tight.

    I first bought a hardcover copy of this book about ten years ago; it is a unique way to look at the gospel message as compared to the general descriptors. I find it very useful when teaching adult SS because of its practical application of what the gospel means.
