Item description for The Struggle of Faith in a World of Beliefs: The Question of Orthodoxy by Henry F. Lazenby...
Christians have always struggled with what should characterize their lives and actions in the world. Often, they have inferred that their identity as Christians should revolve around either a list of doctrines proposed as orthodox or a set of ethics designed to promote a common morality. Usually, this emphasis on doctrines and ethics obscures the essential character of Christian faith. As a result, the real struggle has been to keep one's Christian faith intact while different, and sometimes opposing, beliefs or traditions compete for one's loyalty.
This book presents a way to resolve this struggle by noting the definitive characteristics of a Christian and the roles a church plays in helping Christians develop their full potential as human beings.
