Why Are Christians Living Just Like the Rest of the World? Evangelical Christians say they believe in biblical moral standards and the power of God to transform lives - yet recent surveys show that most are not living any differently than the rest of the world. From money to sex to racism to personal self-fulfilment, a scandalous percentage of Christians are violating biblical standards with barely a twinge of conviction. Ron Sider takes a painfully honest look at this disconnect to reveal the depth of the problem and contrast it with biblical teaching on the transforming power of genuine faith. When we apply these biblical teachings to our lives, we will be more suited to close the gap between who we are and who God calls us to be. "This stinging jeremiad by Sider demands that American Christians start practicing what they preach. Incisive and prophetic." - Publishers Weekly. - Publisher.
