Publisher's Description

Is the gospel getting lost in our concern for social issues?


Overview


John the Baptist stood out from other prophets because of his concentration on Christ. Unlike the Old Testament prophets, and other prophets of Jesus time, he focused on the truth of the gospel. Is this message being lost among the desires to affect immoral social issues and behaviors in our society? What should we focus on as individuals and the church while trying to make a difference in the world? Is there a place for Old Testament justice in today s world?
