NCLA Review: Recent books contend that modern Christianity has gotten snarled up in doctrine and law, missing Jesus’ basic message of loving. If that depresses you, read this one for a shot of encouragement. Gabe Lyons is co-author of Unchristian, one of the books that attempts to explain why Christians are held in such low esteem in today’s North America. Lyons here suggests ways to offset the negative image of Christians and their churches. He packs the pages with examples of exemplary Christians whose lives illustrate the way Jesus calls us to live and love. These people, he has labeled “next Christians,” are expanding the Kingdom of God on earth by “rediscovering the Gospel” and becoming “a force for restoration in a broken world even as [they] proclaim the Christian Gospel.” The “next Christians” reject an “us vs. them” mentality, choose communication over judgment, affirm good wherever it comes from—and make a difference.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0385529856, Paperback)

“I recommend The Next Christians, which will give you great insight into the hopes and aspirations of the next generation…."
Chuck Colson, founder of Prison Fellowship
 
“Provocative, yet massively optimistic!”
Louie Giglio, pastor and founder of the Passion Movement
 
 Gabe Lyons is optimistic that Christianity’s best days are yet to come. His best-selling book, UnChristian, revealed the pervasiveness of culture’s growing disregard for Christians. Now, in The Next Christians, Lyons shows how a new wave of believers are turning the tide by bringing the truth of the Gospel to bear on our changing, secular society.

“Restorers,” as Lyons calls them, approach culture with a different mentality than generations past. Informed by truth, yet seasoned with grace and love, these believers engage the world by drawing it to the sensibility and authenticity of the Christian life.   
 
You can be one of these “next” Christians and change the negative perception of Christianity by living a life that is faithful to the Gospel, yet credible and coherent to your friends and neighbors.
