:Never before has it been so important for Christians to discover the answers God's Word holds to our culture's biggest ethical and social dilemmas. Every day, the 24-hour news cycle offers stories from around the world of unimaginable physical, mental, and emotional suffering. Yet more often than not, these stories and the underlying problems they represent are reported with no suggestions for resolution. Can it really be true that there are no solutions to our world's biggest crises?
Joni Eareckson Tada refuses to believe it. On her TV show, she has interviewed scores of people who have faced life's toughest battles--and emerged victorious! In Life in the Balance, Joni and her friends take on some of the most difficult issues covered by the evening news, such as street violence, abortion, autism, genocide, and stem-cell research. But they don't just tell the stories; they dig deep into the Word of God to find real and lasting solutions to so-called "unsolvable" problems. This workbook, designed for participants in a Life in the Balance individual and group study, will guide readers to apply the timeless yet timely truth of God's Word to society's greatest challenges.
Joni Eareckson Tada has known the grace of God for 30 years after being paralysed from the neck down in a diving accident.
