AN OVERVIEW OF JESUS’ TEACHINGS ON LIFE’S MOST PRESSING TOPICS

Consulting Jesus on how to find eternal life is common. But what relevance do Jesus’ teachings have for contemporary life? When it comes to core worldview topics such as human life, marriage, and race, should it be Christ or culture that decides our convictions? Can we really find intelligent answers to contemporary quandaries in the ancient teachings of Jesus? In Countercultural Living, Carol Swain confronts cultural consensus with the countercultural and surprisingly compelling teachings of Jesus. If you want to find clarity on tough questions and to build your convictions on Jesus’ teachings, you will value Swain’s insightful, practical, and, at times, autobiographical survey of these important topics from a biblical perspective.

Building upon the foundation of Scripture and informed by her own powerful experiences, Swain positions us to live countercultural lives in the world.

As the survivor of a failed abortion, my very existence is countercultural to the predominant cultural narrative of abortion as a choice and a woman’s right. I deeply appreciate Dr. Carol Swain’s focus on the issue of life in Countercultural Living.
— MELISSA OHDEN, MSW, author, speaker, founder of The Abortion Survivors Network

Dr. Swain’s logic is powerful and irrefutable, but her personality and personal stories are what make all she says entirely irresistible. This little book is a big deal.
— ERIC METAXAS, #1 New York Times best-selling author
