The media is lying to you about the supposed horrible state of the world, and we swallow it—hook, line, and sinker.

Jesus commanded us not to worry about tomorrow, yet I meet so many Christians who are terrified about where our world is headed. Paul said to “be joyful always” and “never stop giving thanks,” yet I continually see a misunderstanding of the world’s condition rob Christians of their joy, while the only future thing they’re thankful for is that one day Jesus will rescue them out of it. How sad this is when we realize it’s completely unnecessary! Contrary to what the ratings-driven media will tell you (remember, fear sells), J.D. King lays out a brilliant, scholarly case for the gradual improvement of our world (and most importantly, the Gospel-mechanism behind it all). You’re living at the greatest time in history, and those who embrace the worry-free joy and gratitude available in Christ can be part of this world-improving family called ‘the Church.’ The Media may have duped us, but this book will set the record straight. Read it, and start changing the world.
