A Time for Confidence: Trusting God in a Post-Christian Society
Nichols, Stephen J.
“Christians are living in one of the most complex times in human history. Our culture is in the midst of a moral and intellectual revolution, the pace of which is unprecedented in human history. The moral reasoning that has stood as the foundation of Western civilization is being untended, and those who once stood out as voices of moral clarity are now ostracized as intellectual outlaws on the wrong side of history. But, as Stephen Nichols makes clear in this book, this is no time for panic. A Time for Confidence is a needed reminder that in the midst of the cultural revolution, Christians can be confident that our sovereign God still reigns over human history. Indeed, Christians can also be confident that the church militant will one day be the church triumphant. If you find yourself wavering in the face of cultural opposition, let this book spur you on to greater faithfulness and confidence in the reigning and risen Christ.”See All

“A Time for Confidence has all the hallmarks we have come to expect from its author: an enviable grasp of history, shrewdness in analyzing our culture, and a deep sense that Gods Word has lost nothing of its ancient power. Amid what may feel like the shifting of tectonic plates under Western society, and facing the danger of discouragement, we want Steve Nichols near at hand to point us to a safe place to stand. But he does more than that in these pages. Far from letting us lose heart, he shows us that the gospel gives us many more reasons for confidence than for despair. A Time for Confidence is both a tract and a tonic for our times.”See All
As members of a society that is quickly abandoning its Christian past, followers of Christ often feel disoriented or even frightened. When human leaders and political advocates fail us, doubts arise and the road to compromise beckons.
In this book, Dr. Stephen J. Nichols points to the almighty God as the source and ground of our confidence. Though the whole world may shake around us, His kingdom is unshakable. This is a time for confidence.
