Publisher's Description

We live in a skeptical age. People—especially young people—express doubts about Christian faith. In this thoughtful eight week study Bishop Scott Jones, author of The Wesleyan Way, partners with his son Rev. Arthur Jones, to address hard questions that all of us face when considering faith, religion, and the church. The questions include:

Can only one religion be true?
Why is there suffering and evil?
How can I believe in science and creation?
How can I believe in a God I can’t prove?
Can I trust the Old Testament?
Are marriage, sex, and family life religious issues?
Was Jesus' resurrection real?
Why do Christians disagree about so many things?

The message is strong and clear: Don't let your questions stop you from accepting God's invitation to faith. Engage your doubt, and you may find you are closer to God on the other side.

    Upon reviewing this study online and the basis of the questions that it asks, I believed it would be a compelling book, hoping for a conservative view of scriptures during times of very progressive and liberal teachings. My review of the actual materials shows that this study is based on a very liberal theological viewpoint with discussions of how the Holy Spirit is working in the Buddhist faith, and how folks in other religions can certainly be saved-based on their non-Christian religious practices and beliefs (page 23). The book takes a position that "We firmly believe that God can welcome people into heaven who faithfully practice other religions." (page 24). It also does not adhere to scriptures being the inerrant, infallible word of God and speaks very liberally that the scriptures were presented for a different peoples, and a different time. If you subscribe to a very liberal and modern view of the scriptures and progressive theology, this study may be appropriate for your fellowship as the materials are produced in a quality format. But, based on the backgrounds of the authors, I was a bit surprised at the content as well as very disappointed.
