La teología criatiana contemporánea está dividida en dos grandes perspectivas: los Fundamentalistas afirman que no importa cómo vivamos siempre y cuando creamos en Jesús en tantos que algunos cristianos Emergentes responden que no importa lo que creamos mientras que vivamos como Cristo. El teólogo Michael Witmer llama a ambos lados a salir de sus límites y forjar un tercer camino que retenga las nociones de ambos. En esta obra, el autor examina diez preguntas clave que confrontan a los creyentes contemporáneos y muestran por qué tanto la fe como la práctica correctas son necesarias para un cristianismo auténtico. Este es un recordatorio urgente de que las mejores prácticas pueden surgir solo a partir de la fe verdaderas. Los creyentes genuinos nunca dejan de servir, porque nunca dejan de amar, pues nunca dejan de creer. Contemporary Christian theology is divided between two large perspectives: Fundamentalists imply that it doesn't matter how we live as long as we belive in Jesus, while some Emergent Christians respond that it doesn't matter what we belive as long as we live like him. Theologian Michael Witmer calls both sides out of bounds and crafts a third way that retains the insights of each. In this Book, the author examines ten key questions that confront contemporary Christians and shows why both right beliefs. Genuine Christians never stop serving because they never stop loving, and they never stop loving because they never stop believing.

Must you believe something to be saved? Does the kingdom of God include non-Christians? Is hell for real and forever? These are big questions. Hard questions. Questions that divide Christians along conservative and liberal lines. Conservatives love their beliefs and liberals believe in their love. Each pushes the other to opposite extremes. Fundamentalists imply that it doesn't matter how we live as long as we believe in Jesus, while some Emergent Christians respond that it doesn't matter what we believe as long as we live like him. Theologian Michael Wittmer calls both sides out of bounds and crafts a third way that retains the insights of each. He examines ten key questions that confront contemporary Christians and shows why both right belief and right practice are necessary for authentic Christianity. Here is an urgent reminder that best practices can only arise from true beliefs. Genuine Christians never stop serving because they never stop loving, and they never stop loving because they never stop believing.
