Is agreeing to disagree good enough for God’s family? Christians don’t necessarily agree with each other when it comes to questions of religious pluralism, homosexuality, the role of government, abortion, and war. Too often, we manage these disagreements by ignoring them. Yet we are called to engage the world for the sake of Christ. How can we be effective if we avoid society’s most pressing questions?
In 10 Issues That Divide Christians, Alex McFarland challenges Christ-followers to drill down to the biblical core of ten current issues–such as social justice, evil and suffering, pornography, and environmentalism, among others–and echoes the biblical invitation: “Come let us reason together.” Only by engaging the Scriptures deeply, thinking clearly, and speaking truthfully can we in God’s family address our differences and discover the peace that comes with unity of purpose. With the Bible as our guidebook and the Spirit as our guide, we can respond to today’s urgent questions with the mind of Christ.
