Thriving in a Hostile Culture

Christianity in America no longer holds the influence it once had.  It’s beginning to feel like the Church has been sent into a cultural exile but none of this has caught our Sovereign God by surprise!  Pastor Erwin Lutzer brings insights for today’s church from Israel’s Babylonian exile. Like that season of Israel’s history, Christians must learn to engage our culture without being spiritually destroyed by it. We welcome your questions about surviving and thriving as Christians in cultural exile!
