About the Book

We face a culture that is becoming less intentional and more confused, dragging with it a wayward church. Drifting in this waywardness, many have been taken captive by electronic media and have lost touch with their Bibles. However, God has graced us with a desire to grow in knowledge and find a ballast in life—we only need to accept his life-saving gift. Countercultural: Identities Written by the Gospel will help us wayward children of God to look to the Bible to remind ourselves who God says we are, what we ought to expect, and how we should behave. Asking us to renew our interest in the entire Bible, author Jason E. B. Mouw shares his own personal spiritual journey through the trials and tribulations of life, depression, addiction, and faith in order to help others seek the Bible as a source of comfort and instruction. Though life may sometimes seem meaningless, futile, or even cruel, the Bible and Christ’s redeeming gospel offers all believers a hope and a purpose. By finding our identities in God through his gospel message, we can be delivered from the desperation of the world and live peacefully in God’s grace.
