Dangerous Christian is a war cry for intimacy with God.
It’s easy to equate following Jesus with being nice. Fighting, for all intents and purposes, has become what the bad guys do. That’s the message Shay Robbins learned growing up. Be a good guy. Keep your cool. And don’t get too passionate—that’s a fast track to sin.
But perhaps fighting itself isn’t the problem—maybe it’s what we’re fighting for. We cut other people down to prove our point. We do whatever it takes to get ahead. We puff up our chest and strut around hoping to get others’ approval. And many times, we fail to even recognize the spiritual battle raging just beyond the curtain of our senses.
In a world obsessed with status and self-satisfaction and a Christian community caught up in culture wars, Dangerous Christian offers an invitation to a radically different way of life. Weaving together personal experience and biblical truth, Shay takes readers on the journey of developing brave hearts to engage our broken world through:
-Discovering the radical, passionate love of Jesus Christ
-Cultivating a posture of humility and dependence on God
-Experiencing intimacy with God that changes us from the inside out
-Unleashing the power of the Holy Spirit to fight spiritual battles
-Breaking free from fear and turning our wounds into weapons
This book is not about working harder or doing more. It's an invitation into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ, which can transform us from passive believers into dangerous weapons for the Gospel. A Dangerous Christian sees the world, themselves, and other people differently. Appearances don't matter so much anymore. Physical prowess is no longer how strength is measured. Faith is. Humility, toughness, prayer, and passion to follow Jesus—that's what has the power to change our world, make the devil tremble and bring glory to God.
You and I were created to fight against evil with our Heavenly Father by our side. Following Jesus isn’t for wimps. It’s the most dangerous thing we could ever do. It will take toughness and grit, passion and gutsiness. But it may not look like you’d expect.
