Making the Best of It: Following Christ in the Real World
Ebook, Paperback

This sweeping presentation of the basic Christian outlook on life details the realistic, creative, and hopeful middle posture between those who think Christians must abandon all responsibility for the messy facts of politics and police work and those who think Christians should try to take over the world in Jesus’ name.

Miroslav Volf, Yale University

“With compelling arguments, clear prose, and much erudition John Stackhouse presents us with a must read for those who are concerned with the role of faith in contemporary societies.”

Richard J. Mouw, President and Professor of Philosophy, Fuller Theological Seminary

"John Stackhouse addresses the big ideas about God and human beings and the world, but he does it not only with careful attention to the nuances and scholarly details, but with a focus on the practical challenges of living 'for Jesus Christ, today.' This is a wonderful gift to all of us who care
deeply about thoughtful discipleship."

Robin W. Lovin, Cary Maguire University Professor of Ethics, Southern Methodist University

"John Stackhouse brings realism and theological integrity to evangelical social ethics. Making the Best of It combines prophetic criticism with an eye for real opportunities to live God's mission in today's world. Reflection on four great Christian thinkers of the past century provides a breadth of
vision from which Stackhouse draws principles that make sense of today's opportunities. The result is global and local, timeless and contemporary, faithful and effective."
