Overview

How can a Christian effectively live for the Lord in a pagan culture? Philip Ryken speaks to believers of the 21st century by exploring the book and ministry of the prophet Jeremiah, whose experiences offer great insight into the challenges Christians face when a society turns its back on God.

Linking the pagan culture of Jeremiah's time to our own culture of escalating secularism, Ryken urges believers to recognize God's personal call to stand firm in these tough times. Jeremiah did not choose his ministry nor his place in history; God chose him and called him. In the same way, God has called and gifted each believer at exactly this moment in history.

Ryken's lively treatment of Jeremiah, coupled with his understanding of current pop culture, makes his work an unusually effective wake-up call for those who are ready to take a stand and influence the culture around them for Christ.
