Overview

Demonstrates the power of the gospel to engage the world's problems through hard-edged thinking and authentic proclamation.

Easy answers and simple solutions abound in this world, yet Robert Neville reminds us that the world is itself neither easy nor simple. It is a place of complex problems and thorny difficulties. While pat answers and platitudes satisfy some, there are many others who seek a faith that grapples with real issues in all their complexity and ambiguity.

Preaching to those who seek these kinds of answers requires tough intellectual engagement and forthright honesty. In this book Neville models that kind of preaching, revealing the tools and resources necessary to preach to a congregation and community looking for a more authentic faith to lead them through a confusing and challenging world.

Robert Cumming Neville is Dean of Marsh Chapel and Professor of Philosophy, Religion, and Theology at Boston University School of Theology.
