Throughout the West the war on Christianity in particular and religious freedom in general is ramping up. Increasingly our liberties are being whittled down or taken away altogether as the secular state grows in power, scope and influence. How are Christians to respond to these developments?

Dr. Joseph Boot, along with the collaboration of some others, this is an important statement that deserves a wide audience.

Boot, who is originally from the UK, is a Canadian pastor, apologist and cultural missionary. He is perhaps most well-known for his important 2014 volume, The Mission of God: A Manifesto of Hope. I discuss him and that book in more detail here:
