Are you disillusioned with the state of Christianity in an increasingly isolating, brutal and morally ambiguous world? Does the church seem like a failed experiment? Do you wonder whether God is even listening? If so, you're in good company, and Cookie White's new Bible study guide will pull you into a compelling conversation about maintaining a relevant faith in the twenty-first century.
The eleven chapters in this guide are based on real questions from real people, including the following:
- Do heaven and hell really exist?
- Is there really only one way to heaven?
- Why does God seem to answer some prayers but not others?
- Is a sense of morality woven into my DNA, or is it based on my circumstances?
- What does scripture say about alternative lifestyles?
- If all I want to do is love God, do I need to talk about the sin issue?
- Why do I need Jesus? Why now?
Using primary source documents and sound commentary, Cookie answers all these and more.
In a seemingly arbitrary and harsh reality, Why Jesus? Why Now? offers something uniquely optimistic: hope in a God who is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow, and whose love-unlike the times-is unchanging.
