Apostolic Christianity recognized the importance of communicating the gospel to two radically different cultures: those under the law and those without law.  Up until forty years ago, Western civilization was a culture under the law: a world that accepted the premise of a Lawgiver outside of creation who decrees absolute truth and an unchanging morality.  Bryan Fraser argues that, while evangelical Christianity did a tremendous job of proclaiming the gospel to this former culture, we have struggled in shifting gears to a society founded on pluralism, naturalism, secularism, and humanism--Paul's culture "without law."
  
Winning a Generation Without the Law explores how the rules of engagement have changed in the 21st century. It examines ten "rights" evangelicals enjoyed for 500 years in a culture under the law, but which have increasingly become impediments to the gospel today. Fraser argues that we can no longer afford to play the 'heavy' of Western civilization: expecting people to submit to God's law before they receive his Spirit. He calls Christians to once again become wise as serpents and harmless as doves in a society that has taken down its 'welcome' signs.   

          Topics the book addresses are:

  • The only response the gospel actually requires (and what obligations we have added).
  • The biblical pattern of gospel preceding law.
  • Common misconceptions about what Bible truths fallen man must confess in order to become a Christian.
  • Why the familiar legal "plan of salvation" is the means for those already in covenant relationship to address their sins--not the gospel.
  • How our contemporary gospel message has crept far beyond its singular commission to offer life to those who will receive it.
  • The widening gap between our legal gospel and postmodern thought.
  • How we have blended evangelism and discipleship (and the resultant weakening of the gospel's power).
  • Six impossible demands we place on the natural man.

Book Description Xulon Press, United States, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Apostolic Christianity recognized the importance of communicating the gospel to two radically different cultures: those under the law and those without the law. Up until forty years ago, Western civilization was a culture under the law: a world that accepted the premise of a Lawgiver outside of creation who decrees absolute truth and an unchanging morality. But even though that society disappeared a generation ago, Christianity s presentation of a timeless gospel has failed to adjust to today s postmodern mindset. Winning a Generation Without the Law examines ten battles Christianity continues to regard as integral to its gospel message, but which needlessly bring the law to bear on a culture that will not tolerate it. Here is a plea for Christians to once again become wise as serpents and harmless as doves as they proclaim Christ in a 21st-century world without boundaries. Bryan Fraser is a professional forester and has previously served as a pastor, youth pastor and police chaplain. He presently ministers among the Haida First Nation in coastal British Columbia. He holds the Master of Christian Studies and Master of Divinity degrees from Regent College. Seller Inventory # APC9781609573997
