You Will Be Made to Care, by Erick Erickson and Bill Blankschaen, is a wake-up call to the church in the United States. As the subtitle says, there is a war on faith, family, and your (our) freedom to believe which has been going on for some time. It’s getting worse and shows no sign of letting up anytime soon. As our culture becomes more secular – and aggressively secular – we need to be aware of what’s going on and how to respond.
Erickson and Blankschaen provide a number of examples of Christians who have been adversely affected by the “conform or else” spirit of the age, but don’t stop with simply providing those examples. They provide a plan of action for individuals, families, and churches.
If you’re not aware of what’s happening in the area of religious freedom, you should be. All of us will have to deal with it at some point. This book is a good introduction. If you are familiar with what’s happening, this book will be encouraging and provide steel for your resolve.
