Christian realizes that there is a culture war for control over every aspect of society. Pastors, teachers and church leaders are faced with questions about faith and culture almost on a daily basis. The problem is keeping up with the flood of information, yet it cannot be ignored. Post-modern thought has nearly erased the concept of right and wrong. Cherished truths of the Faith are scorned in popular media. Age-old tensions between Calvinists and Arminians are flaring up, and force a re-examination of classic problems of theology. Alarmingly, even evangelical pastors are compromising with the culture and are trumpeting this compromise in popular books. .
CrossCurrents -- Making Sense of the Christian Life gives a fearless critique of modern errors, showing how a diminished view of God is the inevitable result. Works by Francis A. Schaeffer, Gene Edward Veith and Kenneth Keathley are summarized to show how they can counterbalance what is wrong in our current conversation. On the other hand, books by leaders such as Harold Kushner, Rob Bell, and Greg Boyd contain dangers to Christianity. Issues are pinpointed in clear and easy-to-understand language, so as to equip thoughtful Christians with the tools they need to confront error in their own life and to teach others also.
