Pastor Erwin Lutzer equips Christians to respond bravely to a rapidly changing American culture

“If I could, I would put this book into the hands of every Christian in America.”
—Dr. David Jeremiah 

EUGENE, Ore. (October 19, 2020) – Every day, it seems American society is falling further away from Christian values and common decency and Christians are left unsure of how to respond. In his latest book, We Will Not Be Silenced: Responding Courageously to Our Culture’s Assault on Christianity (Harvest House Publishers, October 2020), Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer equips readers with the truth of Scripture to help live out their convictions against a growing tide of hostility.

“This book examines every cultural issue we are facing,” writes pastor David Jeremiah in the foreword of Lutzer’s new book. “Nothing is left out. It addresses diversity issues, racial issues, gender issues, social justice issues, media issues, issues of free speech, and issues rooted in socialism and Marxism. Most importantly, it covers issues related to the church and how it is responding to all of this.”

We Will Not Be Silenced arms believers with a deeper understanding of the hurts and concerns of nonbelievers with regard to social issues so the church is able to respond in a compassionate and gentle manner without affirming their secular beliefs. Lutzer longs to see Christians unashamedly uphold biblical values and the core principles of liberty in a way that responds effectively to a culture lost in spiritual darkness.

In a time where the truth of the Bible is under siege, Lutzer is providing a valuable resource to restore the church to its rightful place in the world.

“What a special privilege it is to be called to represent Christ at this pivotal moment of history,” Lutzer writes. “We are called for such a time as this. And we must pray that our light might shine more brightly than ever in our darkening world.”
