Each day you watch America turn further from Christian values and the core principles of liberty. It's frustrating to feel you can't assert biblical truth without facing condemnation, and fearful to witness outrage and victimhood replace respect and reason. Amidst this dissent, how can you not only stay rooted in your own faith, but continue publicly testifying for Jesus? In We Will Not Be Silenced, Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer prepares you to live out your convictions against a growing tide of hostility. Gain a better understanding of nonbelievers' legitimate hurts and concerns regarding issues like racism, sexism, and poverty-and identify the toxic responses secular culture disguises as solutions. In the process, you'll see how you can show compassion and gentleness to those outside of the faith without affirming their beliefs.
Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer is pastor emeritus of The Moody Church, where he served as the senior pastor for 36 years. He is the award-winning author of One Minute After You Die and Hitler's Cross, as well as the featured speaker on three radio programs heard on more than 750 national and international outlets. He and his wife, Rebecca, have three grown children and eight grandchildren and live in the Chicago area.
"Once again Erwin Lutzer has given us a challenging, inspirational, and provocative work that will call all serious Christians to clearly represent our God and His Word in the public square. He has strategically balanced biblical authority, cultural relevance, and spiritual sensitivity in this must-read book. You will be both righteously provoked and personally convicted not to be a silent secret agent Christian after being confronted by the truth in this excellent resource." --Dr. Tony Evans, president, The Urban Alternative, senior pastor, Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship

Share it as widely as possible. Refuse to be silent in your witness for Christ!" --H.B. Charles Jr., senior pastor, Shiloh Church, Jacksonville, Florida

With pastoral wisdom and deep insight, he exposes the lies that have brought Western culture to the brink of destruction. But he doesn't stop there. This book shows how we can reclaim the church (which is the key to the culture) if we will once again speak God's truth without fear or favor. I can only hope millions of believers will read this book and be moved to take action." --Dr. Ray Pritchard, president, Keep Believing Ministries

Shelby Sharpe, Constitutional lawyer
