Christendom is dead. And that’s a good thing.

The Christian culture that has underpinned Western society for centuries has been eroded. We're now at the point where to disagree with people on issues such as marriage and sexuality, is seen as hateful. Christians are no longer seen as honourable, but as bigots. But history testifies that the more people try to destroy Christianity, the more it grows. So we are entering an exciting period of time because we’re back in the place where Christ’s church can thrive - at the margins of society.

In this stirring, passionate book, Matt Chandler shows us we need Christian courage like never before, and how to live with compassion and conviction, able to look around positively and reach out confidently.

It encourages us not to be thwarted by fear, but to depend on God and have confidence that Christ will build his church, despite continual marginalization. A must-read for any Christian who wants to understand how to stand firm and walk forwards in an increasingly secular culture.

This is a deeply encouraging book. I mean that literally: it brings courage to the reader. It is also enjoyably punchy, readably short, practically wise and pastorally insightful, with a warmth and winsomeness that books on this subject sometimes lack. Get hold of a copy, and be en-couraged.

Teaching Pastor, Kings Church London; author, The Life We Never Expected

We live in an age of increasing hostility toward Christianity in the west. These are days that will require courage, conviction, and clarity of vision. Matt Chandler’s new book, Take Heart, is a thoughtful, pastoral, and brave call for faithfulness in a trying time. These pages are filled with practical wisdom and sound theological principles that fuel courage in the face of opposition.
