This book was informative and challenging. Stetzer filled the book with a combination of stats and information, theological truths and practical wisdom. Every aspect of the book was definitely useful and it is a read I'd recommend to anyone who is searching for a better way to engage in our outraged and often volatile world.

Karl Barth once said, “Take your Bible and take your newspaper, and read both. But interpret newspapers from your Bible.”

Christians in the Age of Outrage by Ed Stetzer is a bit like a valuable commentary on the ‘newspaper’ of our contemporary world. With refreshing analysis and insight, Stetzer spotlights our turbulent age. This commentary is filled with unclouded, razor-sharp and crisp cultural observation and exegesis that is immensely helpful for Christians who want to map out, understand, and navigate the foggy roads of this age of outrage.  So if you want to better understand and engage with the intricacies and anomalies of our age, this book is for you. 

The foundation of this book is not fluff or speculations. Instead,  it is built upon two solid pillars: Scriptures and research. Stetzer has soaked this book in the Scriptures. Also, he has utilized modern research as a point of reference to highlight the nuances and complexities of this chaotic age. This intersection between research and the Scriptures is done with integrity and insight. 

By reading this book, Christians can be equipped to engage with the age of outrage in constructive ways, being challenged to see and overcome their blind spots and winsomely commend the gospel. 

I thank Tyndale House Publishers for providing me with a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
