God of Tomorrow by Caleb Kaltenbach

“Since tomorrow belongs to God, we can graciously offer hope to people today”

Growing up, the place where I found the most despair was church. Everyone there thought the world was going to hell, a march led by movies, music, and drugs. The only hoped offered was heaven. Somehow thinking about tomorrow was the only way to get through today.

It was depressing. It made being a Christian depressing. The “good news” was hard to sell.

God of Tomorrow is about reclaiming that God is the God of Hope. He is not a God of political issues, religious debates, and divided arguments. It our goal as Christians to beacons of hope to our neighbors. This is the way to show the love of God, not just knocking on random doors asking people to come to church. We should live in a way that has people knocking our doors asking for stuff.

Caleb Kaltenbach writes clearly and bluntly. This is a great follow up to his last book.

Here's one of my favorite quotes from the book: "Combativeness without compassion is always going to be counterproductive”
