Wouldn't it be great to take, say, fifteen minutes and think with Sam about the Trinity, or whether all religions lead us to God, or whether prayer really makes any difference in our lives? Tough Topics 2 offers us that.
... thoughtful brief answers that aren't superficial. As a model pastor-theologian, he answers with clarity, wisdom, and grace.
...hard to imagine a better display of difficult and important questions, followed by thoughtful, careful, reasoned, biblically-based answers. What a benefit this book will prove to be for many.
... digs deep into Scripture and solid works of theology to give gravitas to his answers, yet the 25 chapters are easy to read, interesting, pastoral and challenging.
This is a truly refreshing and thought-provoking read.
Tough Topics 1 was a real gift to the Body of Christ from one of our Lord's gifted Bible teachers and theologians. Tough Topics 2 provides more of the same!
Sam Storms tackles difficult questions in Tough Topics 2 like only a seasoned pastor can... This is a great book to use as a resource or to read straight through.
I believe that in this volume you are going to find a careful theologian with a caring pastoral heart seeking to help everyone think through some of the toughest topics out there. You are going to find a man that upholds the inerrancy and sufficiency of Scripture, and seeks to understand all of Scripture and apply it to all of life. As such, I believe that this volume, as well as its predecessor, belongs on your shelf as a go-to resource to help you answer and think biblically about some of the most challenging topics in Scripture.
...the answers are filled with biblical scholarship, theological acumen, and pastoral sensibility.
...biblically grounded, theologically thoughtful, and practically applied. With the Bible as our guide, the exegetical, pastoral, and reasonable method Storms uses is a model of how we should find answers to the questions we have, so we can worship God as he deserves.
Tough Topics 2 tackles twenty-five more challenging issues with the same biblical wisdom as employed in the original. Is this sequel as good as the original? Read it and see!
... offers the compelling blend of sound theology, biblical reasoning and practical wisdom that we have come to expect from Sam Storms's writings. I warmly commend Tough Topics 2.
