An influential New York City pastor challenges readers to get out of their comfort zones, reject spiritual apathy, and make the world a better place by creating robust communities of faith.

Seeing so much heartache in the world, and so much compromise within the Church, Jon Tyson, the lead pastor of Church of the City New York, believes we must redouble our efforts to build a community of hope that is stronger than the hollow culture around us. In Beautiful Resistance, Tyson invites readers to pursue key disciplines and rhythms through truths such as: worship must be stronger than idolatry, rest must be stronger than exhaustion, and hospitality must be stronger than fear, principles that will make them spiritually stronger than the enchanting pull of the world.
