to Today’s Hot Issues

One of the greatest challenges facing Christians today is the powerful influence of secular thinking. From all directions we’re fed a constant barrage of persuasive—yet unbiblical—worldviews. This makes it difficult to know where to stand on today’s most talked-about issues.

The leadership team at Grace Community Church, along with their pastor, John MacArthur, provide much-needed discernment and clarity in the midst of rampant confusion. Using the Bible as the foundation, you’ll learn how to develop a Christian perspective on key issues—including…

  • political activism
  • environmentalism
  • the cult of celebrity
  • entertainment and escapism
  • homosexual marriage
  • abortion, birth control, and surrogacy
  • euthanasia and suicide
  • disasters and epidemics
  • immigration
  • God and the problem of evil

Also included is a topical reference guide of Bible verses that address key concerns—a guide that will arm you with right thinking and biblical answers to challenging questions.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"For anyone who believes, or even suspects, that Judeo Christian culture along with Biblical vision provides a road map to reality, John MacArthur is a hero and his latest work, Right Thinking in a World Gone Wrong, is a vital resource. Courage is contagious and spiritual truth is uplifting; this book will impart heaps of both to every Christian seeker."
—Rabbi Daniel Lapin, president, American Alliance of Jews and Christians

"In a world of fakes, charlatans, and imposters, John MacArthur stands, almost alone, as a clear voice for biblical truth and integrity. This book blows away the politically correct fog surrounding the top issues of our day, and offers clear and concise answers to very important questions about how we should think, vote, and live."
Kirk Cameron, well-known television and film actor, speaker, and author

"Right Thinking in a World Gone Wrong lays out underlying truths related to ethical issues today. All Christians desiring to know what God requires should read this book."
—Lois Feinberg-Gonzenbach

"As is the case with all of Dr. MacArthur's books, it will no doubt be an invaluable resource, and especially at this juncture in our country's 'culture wars,' when the distinctions between right and wrong are becoming increasingly blurred."
Joseph A. Aleppo, PhD, Chairman and Executive Director, The Aurora Foundation

"I thank my good friend John MacArthur for helping us grasp a solid biblical worldview on the cultural issues which impact our daily lives. John gives us the tools and scriptural framework for us to apply a truly Christian perspective on issues which can be so confusing and complicated. Thank you, John, for helping us see and understand our contemporary world from God's point of view!"
—Joni Eareckson Tada, Joni and Friends International Disability Center

"I recommend this book to anyone who preaches and teaches God's Word in today's world, as a guide to scriptural truth in dealing with many of today's controversial issues."
—Shirley F. Carpenter, EdD, Chairperson, Department of Education, The Master's College

"I have read the book and found it very helpful in identifying so many of the issues that are crucial to the thinking of God's people in this morally confused generation."
Albert N. Martin, pastor

John Macarthur is a pastor/teachor at Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California. He also has a radio show, Grace to You. His beliefs are in line with what I think is the majority of America. He stands for family values, taking responsibility, and placing God first. Though I think the majority of America stands for that, do they act upon that? From video games to living green, Macarthur enlightens the hot topics of the day with scripture coupled with common sense. For example, he shows through scripture that we are to be stewards of the earth. Then, he warns against worshipping Mother Nature instead of God. He speaks of video games-the addiction and the types. I read this book after a conversation with a friend about our community being female-ran. We talked about the men we knew in the community who were slackers who lived on the coat tails of their wives. In a nutshell, we blamed it on the men not wanting to grow up. We talked about the trend of men not doing whatever it takes to support their family as men in older generations did. We talked about seeing them as less than men. There are references to this strange phenomenon in Right Thinking in a World Gone Wrong. He refers to these men as "real-life Peter Pans". He explains that living in a virtual world is not right, because it is not real. Real Christian men are not self-indulgent. This book is about pressing issues. All Christians will benefit from this well-written book. Do not pass this up!

I found this book very interesting. In most instances, I thought it was very accurate. In some areas I believe text from the Bible is not consistent with the point being made. In every case I reviewed my Bible and normally read the whole area to determine the context. I believe anyone but especially a Christian would benefit from reading this book. The book points out many areas of sin. While sin can be forgiven, the damages from the sin may not be avoidable. Continuing to sin can cause you and yours significant pain. I would recommend you read this book carefully, evaluate its content seriously, and go forward into life cognizant of the consequences of your actions.
