'Vital'...pertaining to life; essential; of critical importance.
'Contemporary'...of the present time; belonging to the same time or period.
'Issues'...a point or matter, the decision of which is of special or public importance.
How does the Christian faith affect our understanding of vital contemporary issues such as abortion, euthanasia, and the AIDS crisis? How can we evaluate the moral conflicts of our era from the perspective of biblical truth, and what does the Bible say about social issues, modern-day claims to miraculous gifts, and the tragedy of suicide? 'Vital Contemporary Issues: Examining Current Questions and Controversies' draws upon the insights and studies of numerous evangelical scholars and writers to address crucial moral and social concerns.
Some of the chapters included in this volume are:
Biblical Absolutes and Moral Conflicts by Norman L. Geisler
Euthanasia: A Biblical Approach by J. Kerby Anderson
The Church and the AIDS Crisis by Timothy D. Howell
Evangelical Pluralism: A Singular Problem by W. Gary Phillips
Christian readers, church leaders, and pastors alike will appreciate the insight and guidance of 'Vital Contemporary Issues'.
