Product Description

Amidst the din of competing voices, how can Christians find help in looking at all sides of today's difficult moral questions and in applying the biblical witness in order to arrive at an authentically Christian belief about them? That help is precisely what Adam Hamilton proposes to offer in this brief, accessible guide to the most controversial issues of our time. Scrupulously fair to both the positions that different sides hold and the motivations that lie behind those positions, Hamilton offers clear, concise information on what is at stake in these explosive problems. Yet this is not simply a book about what the alternatives are. It also applies a careful and broad reading of Scripture to offer direct, yet compassionate, guidance on what a faithful Christian response to the issues will be.

Publisher's Description

Christians are faced every day with daunting choices between difficult alternatives. What does my Christian faith have to say about the moral issues that divide our society? There are plenty of people on opposite sides of the spectrum claiming to know the will of God in these matters. It is nonetheless very difficult to find help in looking at both sides of these ethical questions and applying the biblical witness to arrive at an authentically Christian belief about them. This is precisely what Adam Hamilton proposes to do. Presented as a collection of sermons, Confronting the Controversies includes euthanasia, assisted suicide, creationism, abortion, and homosexuality. Scrupulously fair to both the positions of each side and their motivations for holding them, Hamilton offers clear, concise information on what is at stake in these explosive issues. Hamilton applies a careful, broad reading of Scripture to offer direct yet compassionate guidance on what a faithful Christian response will be. This book is set up for group study, with discussion questions at the end of each chapter.
