'In God We Trust' has appeared on American coinage since 1956, so a casual observer might think that the United States is a very pious country. However, Patrick Nachtigall observes that most Americans actually have three 'gods': Religious Freedom, Radical Individualism, and Materialism.
Even Evangelical Christians, who profess to follow Scripture faithfully, hold these three 'gods' to be sacred. This often leads them into moral compromise and strikingly unbiblical behavior.
In his book, In God We Trust: A Challenge to American Evangelicals, Patrick Nachtigall explores how Christianity has been shaped by popular American culture, proposes that a decline in church attendance relates directly to a rejection of a false gospel rather than the true gospel, encourages American Christians to see themselves from an outside perspective, and offers a message of hope to churches who are shrinking and closing their doors.
What lies ahead for Evangelicalism and American Christianity as a whole? A young Christian leader challenges us to reexamine what we believe and practice, and calls for a life of radical faith in the years ahead.
