A profound exploration of how to hold on to hope when our unchanging faith collides with a changing culture, from two respected Christian storytellers and thought leaders.
“Offers neither spin control nor image maintenance for the evangelical tribe, but genuine hope.”—Russell Moore, president of ERLC

As the pressures of health warnings, economic turmoil, and partisan politics continue to rise, the influence of gospel-focused Christians seems to be waning. In the public square and popular opinion, we are losing our voice right when it’s needed most for Christ’s glory and the common good. But there’s another story unfolding too—if you know where to look. 
In Gospelbound, Collin Hansen and Sarah Eekhoff Zylstra counter these growing fears with a robust message of resolute hope for anyone hungry for good news. 
Join them in exploring profound stories of Christians who are quietly changing the world in the name of Jesus—from the wild world of digital media to the stories of ancient saints and unsung contemporary activists on the frontiers of justice and mercy. 
Discover how, in these dark times, the light of Jesus shines even brighter. You haven’t heard the whole story. And that’s good news.
“In our time, the most committed young evangelical Christians are often the least likely to want to use the word evangelical at all. And who can blame them? Evangelicalism has veered recklessly in recent years from tragedy to scandal to farce. The end result is often cynicism. But that’s not the final word. This book offers neither spin control nor image maintenance for the evangelical tribe, but genuine hope. Evangelicalism has fallen on hard times; the gospel has not. My hope is that this book helps us wake up to find, as the old hymn says, ‘the dungeon flamed with light.’ ”—Russell Moore, president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention
Gospelbound helps us fix our eyes on eternity while practically living Christ-centered lives in this present age. This book could not be more timely.”—Ruth Chou Simons, artist and bestselling author of Beholding and Becoming and GraceLaced
“The heart of the gospel is the work of God to make all things new. And the heart of Gospelbound is to breathe new life into this anxious age. Through stories both global and local, Collin Hansen and Sarah Eekhoff Zylstra give us an informed, up-to-the-minute account of the transformative work Christ can do in our hearts, our churches, and our culture. It’s at once a mighty wind and a gentle spring zephyr.”—Mindy Belz, senior editor of World magazine and author of They Say We Are Infidels
“Much of what we read about the church today is discouraging— division and dysfunction, apathy and apostasy, moral failures of leaders and malaise among members. Have we simply become too compromised, too comfortable, and too cavalier about the world’s ills to make any real difference? Gospelbound pushes back against pessimism and defeatism with insightful commentary and inspiring stories. In these pages you’ll discover organizations, individuals, and families whose love for Christ is welling up and overflowing onto a world that is desperately in need of saving grace and Christlike kindness and mercy. The beauty is breathtaking.”—Nancy Guthrie, author and Bible teacher

Gospelbound is the book we need right now: clear eyed about the challenges we face but joyfully insistent that the life offered to us in Jesus is our refuge and strength. Readers will be encouraged to read about faithful Christians who have discovered this in their own lives and find companions for their own pursuit of faithfulness.”—Michael Wear, author of Reclaiming Hope: Lessons Learned in the Obama White House About the Future of Faith in America
“In a time of intense fear and suspicion, Hansen and Zylstra turn our focus to the ‘solid joys and lasting pleasures none but Zion’s children know.’ This book is not only filled with scriptural medicine but also applies the salve to our terrible insecurities.”—Michael Horton, J. Gresham Machen Professor of Theology and Apologetics at Westminster Seminary California

Gospelbound is a true account of everyday Christians like us prevailing in hard times. We really are ‘more than conquerors’ (Romans 8:37). How? By treating the living Christ as real— right where we live. Collin Hansen and Sarah Eekhoff Zylstra paint the picture of that rugged faith, proving Christ’s faithfulness today.”—Ray Ortlund, author of The Death of Porn: Men of Integrity Building a World of Nobility
