I just came across a new book that I wanted you all to know about entitled
Think It Not Strange: Navigating Trials in the New America.
John Piper, along with ten other contributors put this together and it is just what we have been studying in 1 Peter for the past several months about living as aliens.
The book is designed to help the church in America be prepared for our calling in a “ New America.”
"For 350 years in America, the call to be a Christian has not been the call to be an alien. It has not been a call to be a sojourner or an exile or to be out of step with society. Rather, far too many of us have taken it as a call to be a respected citizen in the community.”
