About the Book

How is it possible for someone to grow up in the church, identify as a Christian, and yet still travel a path of separation from God? In God is Not on Your Side, author Joshua Opperman shares his testimony as someone who believed he was a follower of Jesus living a Christian life, but one day came to realize he was actually far from God.

Opperman chronicles his journey of self-reflection and revelation, evaluating not only personal beliefs but external influences that have significantly impacted the American Christian church. He shares a Biblical look at money, politics, and sin and how the gospel impacts culture in power.

Geared toward the approximately sixty percent of Americans who identify as Christians, God is Not on Your Side tackles difficult and controversial topics. It brings to light the many ways in which secular culture has influenced American Christianity both individually and corporately. It calls the follower of Jesus to a renewal of faith and a life set apart from the surrounding culture that bears witness to the power of almighty God.
