We live in an era in which being a Christian is neither popular nor politically correct. As a millennial, author Amy Skoll is watching an entire generation question their faith and walk away from the church as they struggle to reconcile biblical truth with political and cultural trends. But Skoll believes that it is possible to be effective ambassadors for Christ in a world that does not understand Christian beliefs, customs, convictions, and experiences—in spite of the difficulties inherent in that role.
Missing the Point, therefore, offers a fresh take from the perspective of a millennial on how to create an attitude shift among believers and to help them think about the areas of life in which they might be missing the point. As ambassadors for Christ, we do not want to come across as insensitive to the culture and belief systems of those around us. But at the same time, it is our job to accurately represent the gospel without succumbing to a watered-down, empty version of Christianity in the process.
With the guidance provided here, you can refresh your faith, amplify your love for God, restore your hope, and feel empowered to take on the mission of Christ in a world that is increasingly in opposition to Christianity and what it stands for.
