Christians are faced every day with daunting choices between difficult alternatives. What does my Christian faith have to say about the moral issues that divide our society? There are plenty of people on opposite sides of the spectrum claiming to know the will of God in these matters. It is nonetheless very difficult to find help in looking at both sides of these ethical questions and applying the biblical witness to arrive at an authentically Christian belief about them. This is precisely what Adam Hamilton proposes to do. Presented as a collection of sermons, Confronting the Controversies includes euthanasia, assisted suicide, creationism, abortion, and homosexuality. Scrupulously fair to both the positions of each side and their motivations for holding them, Hamilton offers clear, concise information on what is at stake in these explosive issues. Hamilton applies a careful, broad reading of Scripture to offer direct yet compassionate guidance on what a faithful Christian response will be. This book is set up for group study, with discussion questions at the end of each chapter.
Amazing, thought provoking, biblical look at some of the most divisive topics of our time. While spelling out the different thought processes of each opinion regarding the issue in each chapter, Adam lists the biblical truth regarding each issue and in turn lists his interpretation of the scripture while giving his opinion. I would recommend this to anyone seeking to have a greater understanding of the topics in each chapter. I know some of my own opinions have been changed, and solidified, as a result of Hess well thought out and researched topics.
