Product description

From the Back Cover

Terrorism Same-Sex Marriage Debt Cancellation The AIDS Pandemic These are just some of the critical contemporary issues addressed in this book. Issues Facing Christians Today helps thinking Christians sift through and respond to a sweeping array of complex and pressing topics. Thoroughly revised and updated by Roy McCloughry and fully endorsed by John Stott, this fourth edition continues a two-decades-plus legacy of bringing important current issues under the lens of biblically informed thinking. Combining a keen global awareness with a gift for penetrating analysis, the authors examine such vital topics as Pluralism and Christian witness Cohabitation Environmentalism and ecological stewardship War and peace Abortion and euthanasia ... and much more An entirely new chapter on bio-engineering has been contributed by Professor John Wyatt of University College London. Including a study guide, Issues Facing Christians Today is essential reading for Christians who wish to engage our culture with insight, passion, and faith, knowing that the gospel is as relevant and deeply needed today as at any time in history. As the culture wars continue, this book will remain a critical contribution, helping to define Christian social and ethical thinking in the years ahead.

Format: Paperback
I think that the previous review is unfair, or at least misunderstands the purpose of this book. For transparency's sake, i should say that i'm on the Staff of All Souls Langham Place where John Stott is still the Rector Emeritus. But that doesn't detract from my comments i hope. This book has had a huge influence on both sides of hte Atlantic, not least because of Stott's balance, care and range of topics. He would certainly be horrified by the idea that it is simply a collection of his personal views, although of course it contains his own conclusions based on the evidence before him (it would be frustrating if he didn't, don't you think?). This is because he clearly submits to the authority of the Bible - his task is to ascertain the ethical principles that the Bible teaches and then apply them to the various (and sometimes incredibly complex) challenges of our time.

Stott's purpose in writing the book was to fill a huge gap in contemporary evangelical thinking - for too long evangelical Christians have merely sought to 'preach the gospel' and not worry too much about anything else like ethics. Since it was first written in 1984 and subsequently revised several times, the need has remained all the greater (not least because technological advances have complicated ethical decision-making still further). I can't think of another book that provides such a brilliant and accessible introduction. It is not the last word on these issues, but you would do a lot worse than to start here.

This is an outstanding resource for equipping Christians to be informed about contemporary issues and then discuss them with an educated response rather than 'I think...'

This book should be on the shelf of every Christian. John Stott and his editors take a no nonsense approach to all the great debates and issues facing Christians. Starting from the evangelical stand point that the Bible is the last word on a subject, but never settling for simplistic responses, the author explores all areas of an issue, and gently teases out the Christian response - the one that follows the example of Christ himself.

Never satisfied with the stock answers, the Bible studies scripture and brings it to bear in all its fullness on an issue. The book is compassionately written by a man of faith.
First class and highly recommended.

I chose this because I have the previous edition and have used it widely. This is an excellent tool for the lay and ordained minister as well as every Christian wanting to be a good witness but struggling in a complex secular society

Relevant and updated to current thinking with extra chapters for new topical issues. Well worth a buy - I still have the one published in 1984 - but this supercedes it wonderfully helpfully.

Clear, relevant and challenging. John Stott raises the lid on many of the ethical conundrums faced by today's Christians living in increasingly secular societies.
