In Hope for This Present Crisis, which releases on March 2, 2021, and is available to preorder through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, BAM, ChristianBook.com and Leading The Way, Dr. Michael Youssef claims that genuine Christianity has been replaced by progressive, or postmodern, Christianity—a belief system completely devoid of the teachings that make our faith authentic.
"There are teachers, preachers and authors who claim to be Christians, who claim to be preaching the purest and most authentic Christian gospel," Dr. Youssef writes. "Yet they have removed everything that makes the gospel authentically Christian: the reality of sin, the depravity of man, the virgin birth, the atoning death of Christ, the resurrection, justification by grace through faith. For more than 2,000 years, these doctrines have defined what Christianity is.
"But this new crop of teachers, preachers and authors would have us believe that what we've been taught is not 'authentic Christianity.' They have replaced orthodox Christian teachings with 'narrative' and 'postmodern theology' and 'social justice' and political activism.
"What is more, they are telling us the church has been wrong throughout all 2,000 years of Christian history. Orthodox Christianity is wrong, the Bible is wrong and Jesus is wrong. This pseudo-Christian baloney they've devised in their imagination is the only 'real' Christianity."
In Hope for This Present Crisis, Dr. Youssef offers his readers a solution, providing vital instruction on how to:
— Discern biblical truth from false teaching in today's 'fake news' culture.
— Share Christ's love with friends and family members who are hostile to Christianity.
— Confront false teaching, even in the church.
— See a revival of true Christianity at a time when the influence of the church is declining in our culture.
