Sustainable Faith in a Radical, Restless World
According to current popular books, the best life for a Christian is radical, crazy, emergent, innovative, or restless. Authors such David Platt, Francis Chan, Jennie Allen, Shane Claiborne, and Kyle Idleman have dominated the best-seller lists by challenging “comfortable Christianity.” Yet Michael Horton believes too many Christians are chasing the next big thing, a bigger and better faith adventure, which may not be conducive to the slow-growing fruits of the spirit. Instead, Horton advocates for an ordinary and sustainable faith, the type that changes the world dramatically through daily faithfulness.
In his new book, Ordinary: Sustainable Faith in a Radical, Restless World, Horton suggests that the greatest fear of most modern Christians is boredom—a deep sense that they are missing out on the radical life Jesus promised.
Horton, a noted pastor and author, admits his own struggles with boredom in the Christian life: “Even more than being afraid of failure, I’m terrified by boredom. Facing another day, with ordinary callings to ordinary people all around is much more difficult than chasing my own dreams that I have envisioned for the grand story of my life.”
