While many churches teach from popular evangelism books such as Going Public With Your Faith, the reality is that many Christians are feeling an increasing societal pressure to keep their faith to themselves. Court decisions, employment policies and cues from the culture are making it more difficult to speak openly about our beliefs. What is behind the stigma against Christianity? How does this stigma, coupled with other societal factors, lead to increased restriction of religious freedom? Who is behind this effort, why are these measures gaining ground, and how should Christians respond? In this series, John weaves together his background in law, public policy and social studies to look behind the scenes at the ways in which Christian religious liberty is increasingly eroding, while examining the forces that are working together to pressure Christians into silence.
