Can Christians take a stand without stepping on toes?^^In today's culture-war climate, it often seems that Christians are either silent about what they believe or they attack those with differing opinions_sometimes even fellow believers. Can Christians take a stand without stepping on toes? Can Christians maintain and communicate a biblical perspective with grace and love in a pluralistic and sometimes hostile society? Can Christians find common cause with those who do not share their faith? Can Christians disagree amicably among themselves?^^In Public Faith, Charles Drew convincingly demonstrates how Christians can be true to their convictions without contributing to the polarizations that so often characterize our time. Drew has written a wonderfully challenging book_not about what Christians should think regarding social and political issues_but how they can develop and communicate biblical convictions.^
A Public Faith is refreshingly different. Charles Drew has written a challenging book -- not about what Christians should think regarding social and political issues -- but about how to develop practical biblical convictions. This book gives a much needed call to action without politicizing the church. Charles Drew's balanced approach gives Christians a solid, biblical foundation for making decisions. Drew shows how Christians can make a difference in their world by developing the qualifies of servanthood, cooperation, diversity, integrity, and simplicity. He also addresses the controversial area of civil disobedience, and the foundational area of the church's role in the world.
