Product Description

In this classic reissue, scholar, pastor and author J. Philip Wogaman addresses his book to "people who wonder whether Chritian Faith makes sense in light of the sweeping changes to our age," changes that have created at the same time a puralistic world, a technologically sophisticated world, a dangerous world, and a world of great prosperity and yet great suffering. What are we to make of this time we live in? Can the Christian faith really provide a stable foundation. Wogaman wrestles with these and other questions as he investigates the true meaning of a Christian faith with a positive understanding of religious pluralism and a rejection of fanaticism. He concludes that this faith is a "hopeful love" that proclaims the centrality of love against selfishness and the power of hope against despair. "Christian renewal depends on what Christians do about the great opportunities and the treasure given into their keeping," he writes. "The treasure they have in earthen vessels; but if the treasure is shared, the vessels need not be broken.
