Book Provides Remedy for the Moral Decline and Anxiety in the Church Today
evangelical Christianity is riding high. With a "born again"
President, high church attendance, and a globe-spanning gospel
communications outreach, many are calling this the "golden age"

Research Group, evangelicals overwhelmingly felt very good about
the performance of the church. Only 1% thought the church was doing
poorly. Yet, most church members' feelings are at odds with
reality. Look at what is actually happening beneath the surface.
there is big trouble in Christendom. Beneath all the "positive

many attempt to compensate and distract themselves by good works,
religious excitement, even Bible study. Yet, something is very, very
wrong. As sound doctrine, piety, and spirituality decline in the church,
it becomes more and more difficult to find our way back to peace with God
- that promised place of inner calm which is largely what Christianity is
all about in the first place.
for the good news!

Within will give you the kind
of spiritual rest Scripture describes as "glorious" - a rest of
soul you may have thought reserved for Heaven.
Rest From War Within
