Confronting Life As It Really Is. . .Coping with a world of harsh realities in an era of instant gratification, our society has become obsessed with cure-alls for all ills and easy solutions to all questions. And the Church is not immune. When life is hard and doesnt make sense, the Christians casual affirmation that "God is in control"reflects the headlong pursuit of answers rather than taking time to ask the questions. Indeed, true believers may feel they arent supposed to question God.Bestselling author John Fischer challenges Christians to stop running from lifes hard questions, to refuse the clichs and past answers theyve accepted for so long, and to discover if blind adherence to the tenets of the faith might not be real faith at all. His message is that believers should be asking question-as a child does its parents. Questions need not weaken faith but should challenge to growth and strength-to develop a relationship with Christ that is real.Says Fischer: "Questions leave us vulnerable, weak, needy. They open up the gaping holes in our personality, our theology, or our lifestyle. Questions force an honesty that we are unwilling to confront-an honesty that requires us to live with our lives unresolved. We dont like that, especially when were trying to sell a theology that Christianity is the answer to every problem we face."
John Fischer has been mixing his unique combination of singing, speaking, and humor for a variety of audiences for over thirty years. His multifaceted talents of song writing, speaking, singing, and writing reflect the many avenues by which John carries on a spiritual dialogue with real life and real people. ýJohn's books present a thought-provoking challenge to the Christian Church today, encouraging believers to pull the true essence of their faith from the trappings of the contemporary Christian subculture. John's debut into fiction, Saint Ben, received a Silver Angel award for fiction. <<br>
