Publisher's Description

Fifteen years ago, Tony Campolo's 20 Hot Potatoes That Christians Are Afraid to Touch pushed, pulled, and prodded Christians into serious consideration of controversial but critical issues related to the Christian life. Campolo challenged his more than 150,000 readers to re-think their convictions (and prejudices) and to do something about them!

Dubbed by Christianity Today as "the positive prophet" and "a ferocious critic of Christians left and right," Campolo lives up to his reputation in this latest book examining some of today's toughest questions and issues:

  • Is evangelical Christianity anti-feminist?
  • Is our affluent lifestyle at odds with our faith?
  • Is America really in moral decline?
  • Is Islam really an evil religion?
  • Should Christian parents pull their kids out of public schools?
  • Was the war with Iraq a "just" war?

Speaking My Mind…Tony Campolo at his best.

    The author, a well-known and widely read Christian of the "evangelical" school of thought, offers what can only be described as an open-ended and blunt critique both of his movement and of Christianity in general. I found much of what he has to say compelling, if not altogether convincing. To my mind, the best chapter (Ch. 5) deals with homosexuality from the Christian perspective. I happen to believe that what his wife, Peggy, says represents the best view: gay marriage should be legitimized because "lifelong commitments by people who love each other enhance their humanity." The author presently disagrees with this because of more traditionalist Christian (Pauline) teachings on the subject, though I suspect that he is slowly coming around to the idea. The least plausible chapter (Ch. 7) attempts to press Einstein's theory of relativity (I assume that it is General Relativity) into the service of a biblical world view. I detect, underneath all of his thinking, however, a core precept, which I would characterize thus: if I, commited to Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior, take, as the fundamental requirement of my behavior toward others, that I will neither judge nor condemn them (Mt. 7:1-2; Lk. 6:37-38), then surely anything which leads me toward greater compassion for others cannot lead me astray from my commitment. I think, at least, that this is, overall, where the author is going. In any case, were I an evangelical, I would want to make this book required reading for all who describe themselves by that label.

    An excellent book that challenges your faith and why you believe it. Too many people just accept other's interpretations as their own... this book will encourage you to come up with your own interpretation.

    I was surprised when I read this book. Mr. Campolo is trying to make God in his image. He can't accept God as omnipotent, who spoke the universe into creation, because bad things happen on this cursed earth. Mr. Campolo dares to answer for God when he claims that "a loving god wouldn't do these things". Tony has no way of knowing why God does anything He does. God is the Potter, Tony is the clay. Perhaps, God lets these bad thigs happen to cause the rest of His children to react in love toward their brothers and sisters; to come to each other's aid. A sort of refining. Tony Campolo is misled if he believes the things he writes, and he's dangerous if readers follow him.
