It's easy to get discouraged by the headlines. It can often feel as if God has left the building, like we are on our own. We want to believe God's promises to us, and we search for signs of his continuing restoration of the world in which we live. Now, with passion and heart, two leading experts on Christianity and culture cut through the chaos and uncertainty to show readers how God is powerfully active and intensely engaged in fulfilling his promise to restore all things unto himself. Through inspiring real-life stories of justice, mercy, love, and forgiveness in our midst, Smith and Stonestreet present a God who is intimately involved in his creation and using his church to work out the redemption of this world.

From the Back Cover:

God is at work--and He invites you to join HimIt's easy to get discouraged by the headlines. It can often feel as if God has left the building and we are on our own. This soul-stirring book cuts through the chaos and uncertainty to show you how God is powerfully active and intensely engaged in fulfilling His promise to restore all things. Through inspiring real-life stories of justice, mercy, love, and forgiveness in our communities and neighborhoods, you'll encounter a God who is intimately involved in His creation and using His church to work out the redemption of this world."For all those convinced 'all is lost' for Christianity, I say, 'Read this book!' Stonestreet and Smith aim to restore some balance to the doom and gloom narrative by pointing us to the stories that prove that God is still at work today, through people who are addressing the brokenness and taking the opportunities right in front of their noses. Inspiring!"--Eric Metaxas, New York Times bestselling author of Miracles: What They Are, Why They Happen, and How They Can Change Your Life"Not just encouragement but a good swift kick in the pants. If we really believe that God came in Christ not just to save our souls but to restore all things in Him, then we cannot despair. Smith and Stonestreet show how God's people are already advancing God's kingdom in the here and now, as well as give concrete advice on how to take part."--Jay W. Richards, assistant research professor, The Catholic University of America; New York Timesbestselling author of Infiltrated and Indivisible
