World View

Author: Marvin Olaskey

What would our common life be like if Christians were known not only for speaking truth, but also for demonstrating mercy? Marvin Olasky, best-selling author and editor in chief of World Magazine describes this kind of salty Christianity in a far-ranging collection of columns from World News Group.

As Dr. Olasky comments on world events and also shares his personal interactions, readers will be encouraged to bring both grace and truth to every encounter. While deeply committed to standing for biblical truth in the public square, Olasky is just as interested in Christians living out the biblical virtues of humility, kindness, and mercy in all of life the God intended for humanity. His call for gospel values to include both truth and grace, makes his voice stand out in a world that often falsely divides those goals and settles for a poor imitation of the robust Christianity he calls readers to.

This curated collection of World columns offers the best of Marvin Olasky and sets forth a much needed vision for how Christians can speak truth and demonstrate mercy at the same time using their faith in Jesus Christ to guide the way. A wonderful collection that all readers of World Magazine will want to have for their own library and an extra copy to share with a friend.
