Description

As followers of Jesus, we know that the good news is deeply attractive. But we often fear that to those on the outside, it comes across as irrelevant or even repellent. Sometimes the Christian worldview feels so out of step with everything else going on that we don't know how to share our faith.

However, author Daniel Strange wants to show you that the connections are there—in fact, the longings that our culture cannot help but express are the very ones that Jesus fulfils.

Building on the work of theologian J.H. Bavinck, Dan reveals five recurring themes that our culture can’t stop talking about, or, as he puts it, the “five permanent ‘itches’ that in our work, rest, and play, we have to vigorously scratch.” From TV to books to social media, these are the questions we can't stop asking and the tensions we can't stop wrestling with—and Jesus speaks powerfully into each one.

This book will help you to spot these connections in our culture, excite you about how Jesus makes sense of humankind’s deepest questions and longings, apply them to your own life first and then equip you to speak of him to others in a way that is truly magnetic.

"Dan Strange has written another terrific, down-to-earth book to help believers engage in fruitful conversations with friends about faith." Dr. Timothy Keller, who has also written the foreword to this book.

Dan Strange is ‘convinced that the church has the opportunity to fill a massive gap in our secular and fragmented market’. Which is why he has given us this perceptive and somewhat unusual book. Using Bavinck, Scripture and an excellent knowledge of contemporary culture, he shows us how we can fill that gap by being magnets for the gospel. The more I read, the more I was drawn to this idea. We have someone wonderful to communicate—but sometimes we struggle to join the dots and make the connections with those around us. If that’s you, then you will find this wee book a stimulating and refreshing guide.

A timely and important book that will help many to share their faith more naturally and effectively through connecting their friends to the gospel message.
