Against the backdrop of advancing secularism and rampant atheism, we see churches closing on all sides. Particularly in the West, where Christianity is often regarded as old fashioned, quaint and irrevelant. Strangely, at the same time it is evident that new churches are springing up everywhere.
Terry Virgo maintains that we need visionaries, tough fighters and tenacious builders if we are going to see the Gospel succeed in our generation and build strong churches that engage wiht our contemporary culture and bring in the Kingdom of God. Building great churches requires tenacity, endurance and Nehemiah-type leadership. By examining the lives of Nehemiah, Joseph, and Gideon and others, the author inspires us afresh and shows that the tide is turning against secularism as we see God's great plan being fulfilled to glorify His Son in the Earth.
