Preachers these days have a reputation for licking their fingers and testing the wind before they open their mouths.
That’s a long way from the legacy of preachers whose words shook the world and made monarchs tremble.
They were people who pledged their heads to heaven. They would rather speak uncomfortable truths and offend a generation — even if it cost them their livelihoods or lives — than offend the God who made him.
What kind of uncomfortable truths would cost them their heads?
John the Baptist gave us a great example of what that used to look like.
Do we have anyone willing to follow these examples?
Here’s the book featured in the interview:
John The Baptist: A Rude Awakening Precedes A Great Awakening.
This timely little tome chronicles the politically incorrect ministry of one of God’s most effective wildmen, John the Baptist, who prepared the way for Christ’s ministry.
The abrasive message of repentance John preached 2000 years ago is still confrontational and offensive today — but it is also life-changing.
In our putrid, worldly culture that has turned away from God, this book is a must-read for every Christian.
Available in paperback for those of you who like the feel of the pages in your hot, little hands, as well as on Kindle to keep it right at your fingertips.
