Product Description

How can we speak the truth as truth, yet speak it in love? How can we confess Jesus Christ without that confession being merely a rock we throw at a culture we are only too ready to dismiss or, worse, without reducing its gospel truth to something we find manageable and, finally, harmless? How can we avoid the temptation either to think that we alone possess the truth or to truth the truth to make it less offensive to the world? These are the questions that this clearly written book will attempt to answer, questions about the challenge of trusting the truthfulness of the gospel in a time when all such truth claims are suspect. 115 pages, Softcover, Geneva Press.

Publisher's Description

How can we speak the truth as truth, yet speak it in love? How can we avoid the temptation either to think that we alone possess the truth or to trim the truth to make it less offensive to the world? These are some of the questions that this clearly written book attempts to answer, questions about the challenge of claiming and trusting the truthfulness of gospel in a time when all such truth claims are suspect.
