Some books answer our questions, and some books question our answers. Ron Highfield's book questions our questions and drives us deeper into our answers. It addresses such questions as these: what is thoughtfulness, and why should Christians cultivate this virtue? What is freedom, and is God a threat or support to freedom? Why is it tempting to live as if there is no God? What is the basis of human worth? What is happiness, and how can we attain it? How can Christians understand and respond to the contemporary moral crisis? Who is God, and how do we know? How should Christians respond to the sexual revolution? What is worldliness? How do I discover God's will for my life? How can I forgive those who wrong me? In this book, Highfield gives us a collection of 55 short essays, each readable in five minutes or less. Each essay develops an interesting religious or moral idea in a creative and stimulating way and is followed by probing questions for discussion. The short chapters make the book suitable for busy individuals who have only brief periods of time for reading and for Sunday school classes and discussion groups.
