James K.A. Smith on Alarmist Christians

All Current Features

The New Alarmism: How Some Christians are Stoking Fear Rather Than Hope — Smith responds to some voices within the church who portend the decline of Christianity. “[My] critique is not a progressive dismissal. For nearly a decade I have been trying to diagnose the causes of Christian assimilation to culture in books like Desiring the Kingdom and You Are What You Love. The church certainly needs to have a conversation about how it fosters the faith in each generation and a new intentionality about Christian witness in a secular age. But the new alarmism is something different.”
