Books that Christian Leaders Say Should Be Written

By February 5, 2016Writing

In a December survey, U.S. evangelical leaders listed topics for books they would want to be published in the next two years. The topics primarily focused on mission, social action and evangelism. One fourth of evangelical leaders suggested book topics about living biblically in an increasingly pluralistic society, according to the December Evangelical Leaders Survey.

“The proposed book topics speak to the challenges and opportunities evangelicals will face in coming years,” said Leith Anderson, president of the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE). “Many are concerned with how we will continue to engage in a culture that some feel is increasingly hostile to biblical Christianity.”

One leader provided the title, “Living for Jesus in Modern Babylon.” Another leader suggested a book on “honoring Christian consciousness while living in community with a world of pluralistic values.” One nonprofit executive recommended a book about the implications of a more pluralistic society on the religious exercise of Christian nonprofits.

    I had to laugh when I read your blog post. The irony of the title suggestion Living for Jesus in Modern Babylon is such an indicator of the problem with our mindset. We want to insult people to Jesus:-).
