The Great Divide

The biggest challenge facing the church today – and what we can do about it.
SKU: N/A Category:

Are you affected by the great divide?


The great divide is the all-too-common belief that some parts of life are ‘sacred’ and important to God but others are ‘secular’ and irrelevant to him.

It’s a stifling, life-denying lie – but that doesn’t stop it affecting us deeply. Overcoming it – as individuals and as communities of believers – can nourish our souls, thrill our spirits, give us a fresh sense of purpose and freedom, and release us all into our everyday mission for Christ in his world.

When it first appeared in 2010, The Great Divide was distributed by Scripture Union and at the Lausanne Congress. Since then it has sparked a movement to challenge the sacred-secular divide in the UK church.

Today, its message is as urgent as ever. So we’ve revised and redesigned it for a new decade – digitally and online as well as in print.

Now you can share it with the people God’s put on your heart – and inspire them to embrace the full implications of the whole-life gospel.
