Christians tend to polarize. Some have intellectual faith, while others are more emotional. Some focus on structure, while others focus on freedom. And some champion evangelism, while others advocate social action. John Stott's clear-headed and classic statement of balanced Christianity shows how we can hold these tensions together in ways which are biblical and faithful. This edition includes an interview entitled 'Life in the Spirit of Truth' between Roy McCloughry and the author.
Put two contrarians together and shake well. -Christianity Today The gloves come off in this electric exchange, originally hosted by Christianity Today, as leading atheist Christopher Hitchens (author of God Is Not Great) and Christian apologist Douglas Wilson (author of Letter from a Christian Citizen) go head-to-head on this divisive question. The result is entertaining and provocative-a glimpse into the ongoing debate.
What is happening to Christianity? Is worldwide Christianity in decline or is it entering a period of change and growth? Has religious belief been transformed by the popular ideas of Darwin, Freud, Hugh Hefner and others? How are we personally affected by increasing cultural change, and, most importantly, does Christ continue to make a difference in the modern world? This well researched book explores both modern culture and science and shows how they impact our thinking and Christianity. It describes the influence of television and our media driven world and illustrates the spectacular growth of Christianity in other countries. The book provides insights that may enable us to act with greater freedom. It may even change the way we think about God. An enlightening read.
