Have Christians blown their credibility in the modern era — and, if so, is it possible to get it back?

These are just two of the questions at the center of Phil Cooke and Jonathan Bock’s new book, “The Way Back: How Christians Blew Our Credibility and How We Get It Back,” with Cooke telling Faithwire where he believes Christians went wrong and how he thinks they can correct their cultural path.

“The fruit of the spirit … that’s what people are supposed to think of when they hear the word ‘Christian,’” he said. “But you go to a typical nonbeliever and ask what they think of Christians [and it’s negative].”

Cooke said that “Christianity is retreating” in society, explaining that he sees massive cultural differences when he juxtaposes today’s societal paradigm to the one he remembers as a child.

“When I was a kid, prayer in schools was perfectly normal, especially during exams, abortion was clearly wrong, marriage was understood as a sacrament between a man and a woman,” he said, noting that all of these sentiments have now been turned on their head. “We’ve gone from a culture where Christians were ignored to one where they are openly ridiculed.”

But as Christians have taken a variety of means to try and correct these issues, Cooke said that most of these tactics simply haven’t worked. From angry responses to politics, boycotts and petition drives, nothing has stopped the transformation of the culture away from biblical sentiment.
