Reviews - What do customers think about Issues Facing Christians Today (Revised)?
Fantastic book... Apr 25, 2008
A few months ago my husband and I were talking about the current political climate with our pastor. As a Christian, I was questioning some of the moral and ethical debates that have been rolling around between the presidential candidates and wondered what the Bible said about the various topics. We had a very intense and deep conversation and our pastor recommended John Stott's "Issues Facing Christians Today" and it has been an incredibly detailed, informative and fantastic read. If anyone is looking for a biblically informative book regarding homosexuality, abortion, terrorism and other current topics, you need to pick up this book.
