Insightful Biblical look at challenges of our day

The Disappearance of God: Dangerous Beliefs in the New Spiritual OpennessThe Disappearance of God: Dangerous Beliefs in the New Spiritual Openness by R. Albert Mohler Jr.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Mohler does a good job of evaluating current issues facing the church in the light of biblical theology, and he does so with power. Imminently readable, helpful, and sobering, the book puts steel in one's backbone.

The issues he takes on include, but are not limited to, the new understandings of hell, the Emerging Church (and Brian McLaren), Open Theism, and post-modernism. This is no long, mind-numbing tome, either; Mohler communicates an much in short, succinct chapters.
