Reviews - What do customers think about The Fall and Rise of Christian Standards?
EXCELLENT, MUST READ! Feb 3, 2007
This is a fantastic book. It discusses all the "hot" conversation that can be had around the issues of conservative, Christian standards. Even if you don't agree with it all, it does a GREAT job of explaining the difference between legalism (ever use that "reason" for not accepting a standard someone has?) and freedom in Christ. Super!
The Fall And Rise of Christian Standards Mar 15, 2006
The author is coming from a conservative viewpoint, but respectfully recognizes the viewpoint of more liberal Christians. He approaches this topic using sound logic and correct application of scripture. Any Youth Leader struggling to maintain proper standards among your teens (like I am) ought to read this book.
A desperately needed book for the church Mar 29, 2005
This book tackles a divisive issue in the church with scriptural reason and a gracious spirit. It answers all the hard questions about dress and appearance with biblical and practical logic. You may disagree with the authors position, but you will find it hard to base that disagreement on the Bible. Essential reading for every Christian! Highly recommended.
