While books about doctrine supply description and analysis of the classic questions of the faith, they often miss the contemporary questions on the minds of readers. This book fills that gap. Organized around the key topics of Jesus, the Bible, church, the Holy Spirit, evil, salvation and hope, the sometimes-provocative questions on these topics aim to ring true with the lived experience of real people. Even more, they look to inspire reflection, debate, disagreement, and above all, engagement in what the Christian faith is all about.
David Lauber (Ph.D., Princeton Theological Seminary) is associate professor of theology at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois. He is author of Barth on the Descent into Hell: God, Atonement and the Christian Life.
