Tim Chester, Stott on the Christian Life: Between Two Worlds (United States: Crossway, 2020).

US-41 through Bradenton, Florida is also known as the Tamiami Trail.

Katherine Hayhoe, Saving Us: A Climate Scientist’s Case for Hope and Healing in a Divided World.

Hayhoe notes her own experience with this subculture. “What breaks my heart is the attacks I get from people who identify as Christians. When someone on Twitter has just called me a whore and I go to their profile and it says something about “loving others” and “so blessed” it makes me feel so discouraged.”

As clearly did Stott. His book Our Guilty Silence disturbs that other part of my sensitive conscience.

Rodney Stark in The Rise of Christianity makes note of the critical role that social concern and acts of mercy played in the growth of the church after Pentecost.
