It's ok to ask questions - and perhaps even change your mind.
In Volume 2 of his series Questions & Responses, Rowland Croucher continues to reflect on what he considers are the most common, complex and urgent questions he has been asked in his over fifty years as pastor and counsellor. In the current volume, these include recollections of people who have influenced his thinking and ministry (John Stott, John Claypool, Oscar Romero). He also considers issues of significant importance in the churches and society (same sex marriage, the appeal of wealth, the nature of happiness, spiritual direction) as well as three chapters on what a healthy church looks like in today's context.
As in the previous volume, the Rowland does not pretend to have solid, rock hard answers to the questions and issues raised; only a conviction that the responses he offers may be sources of encouragement, comfort and challenge to those who are committed to following the Christ in faithfulness and love.
Rowland Croucher has been a Baptist pastor and counsellor mainly in NSW and Victorian churches, and, more recently, via John Mark Ministries, supporting pastors in all Christian denominations.He has written ten books and continues to be active in preaching, teaching and counselling.Recently widowed, he and his wife Jan (also a pastor) had four children, six grandchildren and three great grandchildren.
