Welcome to the online home of Audra Jennings, a book publicist and crafter. Here I share about both. I hope you'll find books you'll want to read and crafts you will want to order. I live a rather boring, single life. At times I would like to think I am humorous. In the past, blogging about current seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette were a big part of the blog. I'm giving that up though. I just can't handle it anymore.
Boldly Yet Humbly Declaring the Truth
Boldly Yet Humbly
Declaring the Truth
Steve Brown encourages Christians to step
up to share
their faith and speak out on what they
know is right.
It can be difficult to be a Christian in today’s culture.
Not only is the outside world hostile to Christians and their faith but the
voices that speak loudest don’t always speak for the masses. There are a lot of
assumptions out there about what Christians do and don’t believe. With all this
hostility, speaking up about issues related to faith can be intimidating. However,
in his new book Talk the Walk: How to Be Right without Being Insufferable(New Growth Press, June 3, 2019), Key
Life Network founder Steve Brown
calls Christians to step out and speak up about what they know to be true.
This attitude-altering book invites
Christians to cultivate both boldness and humility in communicating gospel
truth. By uncovering self-righteousness and spiritual arrogance, Talk the Walk shatters stereotypes and
helps believers consider how they present the good news without watering it
Brown writes that while we, as Christians,
may be right on issues of salvation and theology, we may miss the less
articulated truths of humility, love, and forgiveness. This guide unpacks the
call to “go out into the world” and share faith by being truthful and winsome. By
helping men and women love others out of a deeper love in Christ—the one who first
loved us—Brown helps Christians present the gospel clearly and with compassion.
“America and much of the world has gone through a massive
cultural shift over the past thirty years. That shift is called postmodern,
post-Christian, or perhaps transcultural. Whatever the name, the old and
traditional views of anthropology, sexuality, social norms, religion, and
culture have been set aside for the new views of tolerance, acceptance, and
freedom,” Brown shares. “Most thoughtful Christians I know are concerned about the
cultural shift and feel, as it were, as if believers are standing by a cliff,
telling people to be careful. Those folks to whom Christians express their
concern are tolerant, albeit dismissive. Believers stand by the cliff, giving
their message, ‘Look at the blood down there. Don’t get so close to the cliff!
It will kill you.’ But folks keep jumping.”
Talk the Walk explores the tools necessary to
accomplish an attitude change of confidence and humility, repentance and truth.
Readers will discover how to share the message of Christ without distorting it
and speak confidently without being cold. By operating out of humble gratitude
for the gospel, they will begin to talk the walk of Christian faith, reflecting
the love and truth of Jesus.
“I would hope that the reader would have a major ‘attitude change’ in
our call to ‘go into the world.’ I hope to give believers the tools necessary
to accomplish that attitude change,” says Brown. “Boldness, repentance,
compassion, confidence, humility, truth, love and street-smarts are the ‘takeaways.’”
Author and speaker
Elyse M. Fitzpatrick praises Talk the Walk by saying, “I have yet to
figure out how to be confident enough to speak truth to people and yet humble
enough to close my mouth when all I’m doing is showing off how smart I
(foolishly) think I am. It’s for this reason that I’m really thankful for this
book. Steve is a wise and gentle pastor, and he’ll help you (as he has me) feel
the pinch of truth while he pours in the gentle love of the Christ who knows you.
Get this book. Your unbelieving friends will thank you.”
