‘Kingdom Values’ Reminds Believers We Are Called to Be Set Apart
To break through the toxic atmosphere in our world right now, best-selling author and pastor Dr. Tony Evans urges Christians to model Christ’s love in word and deed in his newest book, “Kingdom Values,” releasing June 7, 2022, from Bethany House.
Drawing from the virtues in the Beatitudes and the teachings of Christ, “Kingdom Values” brilliantly outlines how to usher in authentic and lasting change, not only in our culture, but also in our individual lives. Evans aspires to help individuals living in our tumultuous society understand how aligning thoughts, words and actions with God’s values can help Christ-followers receive peace, comfort and purpose.
“We are supposed to make an imprint on earth from the influence of heaven,” writes Evans. “We are to pray like Jesus, ‘Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.’ We are to live according to the truth because that is the only way we will fully invite God’s healing hope and intervention into the cultural chaos that seeks to engulf us.”
There are many factors contributing to our nation falling into disarray. Mental health disorders and suicide rates are at an all-time high. Families are being torn apart by divorce. Physical and verbal violence is being displayed across playgrounds and the Hollywood awards stage. “Kingdom Values” reminds Christians that the only way to fight against the toxicity that is permeating our culture is through the development of biblical character.
“It is high time for those of us who claim the name of Jesus Christ to return to the truth,” says Evans. “We are not to apologize for being people of the truth. We ought to live with an unwavering commitment to the absolute, divinely authorized objective standard by which reality is to be measured. When you and I do that, when we live as people of the truth, we will bring calm to the chaos that surrounds us.”
“Kingdom Values” will release June 7, 2022. To learn more visit bakerpublishinggroup.com/books/kingdom-values/408710.
