Sandra shares, “There is an element of change in the air for fundamental, conservative, evangelical churches! I’ve been thinking about it a lot and decided to write an essay about it. That essay has turned into a manuscript that may or may not be published in book form. Truthfully, with complete transparency, I made myself anxious. Do I want to face some of the people who know me, who know my roots, who have watched me in my Christian walk, and may be disappointed in what I write today? But early one morning, the words to a song we used to sing at church popped into my mind, and my anxiety faded away. The Holy Spirit does that kind of thing for those of us who look for that kind of thing.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Sandra Mackey’s new book is a collection of essays that reveals the changing climate of fundamental, evangelistic churches in the mid-twentieth century.

There have been cultural, social, emotional, historical, and educational differences between each and every generation. Many churches and families have been divided over one thing or another throughout religious history. In the United States, the climate of the 1950s and 1960s is totally foreign to children born in the late 1980s through the early 2000s. They are collectively called “Generation Y” or “Millennials.” God wants them to be part of His family, but the look, sound, and feel of the 1950s is not acceptable to “Gen Y.” Consequently, many have left the fellowship of the more fundamental churches to search for a better fit.

In family matters, business relationships, social circles, and realms of academia, there can be disagreements about methods of doing certain things certain ways. At the same time, there can also be unity of purpose and performance. In matters of religion and theology, however, the faithful have trouble accepting disagreement, even though the Lord preaches kindness.

“When we are able to offer grace to one another and when we can love even those with whom we disagree, well… that is when righteousness and peace kiss!” (Psalm 85:10)
