Product Description

* Politics, science, social drinking, homosexuality, the emerging church---controversial issues dominate the media, but why don't we discuss them openly in church? Exploring the silence from the pulpit and the pews, Boone examines the ways people prevent authentic dialogue; and calls us to address uncomfortable topics with honesty, understanding, and compassion. 192 pages, softcover from Beacon Hill.

Publisher's Description

Homosexuality, social drinking, and politics . . .Why is it so hard to talk about these topics and others like them in the church? What keeps us from having open and honest conversations about complex and controversial issues? The silence in the pews about these matters can be deafening. Often members say little, fearing disagreement and rebuttal, others strongly assert half-truths and biases. Nothing gets truly discussed, and many, especially the youth, become discouraged and leave.A Charitable Discourse insightfully explores why this happens, looking closely at the ways people avoid and prevent authentic dialog, from labeling and grandstanding to religious abuse. Seven controversial issues are discussed with understanding, sincerity, and compassion.
