Understanding the gospel in a whole-Bible context The first generation of Christians were not popular. They were ridiculed, persecuted, yet according to Acts 17:6-7, they "turned the world upside down." As a result, their message was communicated louder and clearer than any message before or since. Even with today's social medias, big-name celebrities, and shiny evangelism techniques that add glitz and glamour to the gospel, today's Christians fail to communicate as effectively as the first followers of Christ. Simply put, the early church turned the world upside down, but today's church has been turned upside down by the world. Believing that this shift is a result of too many Christians failing to adopt a whole-Bible worldview, author and popular blogger Dan Phillips offers an easy-to-understand, conversational, and engaging analysis of the gospel and the results it once had--and should have again. Drawing on decades of studying the Bible's Hebrew and Greek texts, Phillips clearly draws out the Bible's teaching of God's eternal plan as started in Genesis and played out through each book of Scripture. Written with the same accessible tone that has made Phillips's blogs popular to thousands of readers, The World-Tilting Gospelchallenges believers to hold fast to a biblical worldview even if it makes them unpopular. "When Christians are again gripped by that gospel rather than obsessing about being liked by the world," writes Phillips, "they will be able to turn the world upside-down again."
Dan Phillips is known for his writing on the Pyromaniacs blog (http://teampyro. blogspot.com) and on his own blog, Biblical Christianity (http://bibchr.blogspot.com). Having served as a teacher, pastor, seminar speaker, newspaper columnist, and radio talk show host, Dan has an ongoing conference and pulpit ministry. He lives in Sacramento with his amazing wife, Valerie. They have four children and around six cats.
