Selected Writings from Lance Wallnau, Bill Johnson, Alan Vincent, C. Peter Wagner, Che’ Ahn, and Patricia King, capture the foremost elements needed to shape and influence culture in “Invading Babylon: The 7 Mountain Mandate.”
Bill Johnson asserts that “You must first understand that you are called and equipped…” Lance Wallnau carefully lays a foundation and for invading and transforming a culture through reaching the influencers in business, education, the church, the family, in arts and entertainment, science and medicine, the media, and in government. He also presents a strategy to transform the city, region, and nation and ultimately the world with the Gospel of Christ.
By following Jesus’ example of preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom we are equipped and empowered to turn the world upside down to see dramatic cultural transformation. Wallnau shows how important it is to include the Church, the Gospel, and Culture to fulfill the Kingdom mission. Alan Vincent and Che’ Ahn introduces the importance of prayer and spiritual warfare in an allegory for occupying the gates of the heavenly city and the 7 mountain mandate. C. Peter Wagoner emphasizes that “Once the spiritual gates have opened to us, we need great wisdom to steward and distribute the resources God funnels our way.” King warns of the danger of the media and the unhealthy influence filling the airwaves.
“Invading Babylon: The 7 Mountain Mandate” is a relevant and timely collection of important truths for influencing our culture is these turbulent times. Highly recommended.
