What’s new in the evangelical world? Plenty.
Books like The Purpose-Driven Life and Wild at Heart are selling in huge numbers, being read by unbelievers, and taking congregations by storm.
The Bible, judged “too big and freaky” by focus groups, has been transformed into Revolve, a glossy, fashion-magazine-style New Testament for teen girls.

In response to a flood of questions from congregations around the world, John MacArthur and his pastoral staff bring you a brand new book, Fool’s Gold? A compelling collection of balanced, biblical exposés, Fool’s Gold? probes eight trends that Christians and their churches face today—what they are, what they mean, and how you can respond with wisdom and discernment.
