How can we speak the truth as truth, yet speak it in love? How can we avoid the temptation either to think that we alone possess the truth or to trim the truth to make it less offensive to the world? These are some of the questions that this clearly written book attempts to answer, questions about the challenge of claiming and trusting the truthfulness of gospel in a time when all such truth claims are suspect.
