5.0 out of 5 stars Clarity in the Storm of Controversy 8 Jan. 2014
By Dr. David P. Craig - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Sam Storms has a name that is an oxymoron if there ever was one. His writing is anything but stormy. He writes more like the "calm" before the storm. This is exaclty how he handles difficult questions: calmly, rationally, theologically, and biblically. There's hardly anyone who will agree wholeheartedly with his answers to the 25 questions raised in this book, but irregardless you will benefit from his skill as an exegete, practical wisdom, pastoral encouragement, theological acumen, and passion for God's glory exhibited throughout the book. In each chapter he gives ample biblical, theological, and practical support for his answer to each question. He also provides a list of 2-5 recommended resources on each topic at the end of each chapter for those who want to study the topic in greater detail.

The book isn't divided systematically or topically. Almost all the questions stand alone. If I were to organize the book I would organize the book in the following manner:

(1) Theological Questions - (a) Is the Bible Inerrant?; (b) What is Open Theism? (c) Does God Ever Change His MInd? (d) Could Jesus Have Sinned? (e) Does the Bible Teach the Doctrine of Original Sin? (f) What can We Know about Angles? (g) What Can We Know about Satan? (h) What Can We KNow about Demons?

(2) Exegetical Questions - (a) What Did Jesus Mean When He Said, "Judge Not, that You Be Not Judged?" (b) What is the Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit? (c) Does Hebrews Teach that Christians Can Apostasize? (d) What was Paul's Thorn in the Flesh?

(3) Practical/Pastoral Questions - (a) Are Those Who Die in Infancy Saved? (b) Will People Be Condemned for Not Believing in Jesus though They've Never Heard His Name? (c) Can a Christian Be Demonized? (d) Can Christians Lose Their Salvation? (e) Will There Be Sex in Heaven? (f) What Is Baptism in the Spirit, and When Does It Happen? (g) Should All Christians Speak in Tongues? (h) Is There Healing in the Atonement? (i) Why doesn't God Always Heal the Sick? (j) What is Legalism? (k) Are Christians Obligated to Tithe? (l) Does Satan Assign Demons to Specific Geopolitical Regions? Are There Territorial Spirits?

Sam Storms has done a wonderful job of tackling each of these questions. I highly recommend this book as a resource that all Christians can use for life. My hope is that this is just the first of a series of more question and answer books to come. As a pastor-theologian Storms is more than qualified to tackle the most difficult of questions in truth, with love, gentleness, and respect.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great primer on tough topicsw 23 Mar. 2014
By MzEllen - Published on Amazon.com

I recently read through “Tough Topics” by Sam Storms, who wrote the book in order to answer some of the basic, but hard questions believers ask.

That is my aim in this book: to articulate good theology in order to put worried minds at rest. All of us are familiar with the sorts of problems and questions and doctrinal conundrums that plague the human mind and agitate the human heart, questions like the one lingering in the thinking of Lucy: Will God ever flood the entire earth again?
In my experience these nearly forty years of Christian ministry, I’ve seen countless people worried and angry and fearful and just plain confused when it comes to some of the more perplexing issues that life poses and the Bible provokes,

The book flows easily, and addresses some of the topics that can torment a believer, like “what happens when my baby dies” and “will I enjoy heaven if my loved one goes to hell?”

The book promises to addresses these topics and more, offering to help remove doubt that Christianity could leave us in “limbo” about things that can weigh on our minds.

Very shortly after I finished the book, a pastor friend came to me and asked, “what would you tell somebody who had a baby that died?” I answered “I have a book for you...” (he never gave it back...which is why I have a kindle version and -another- paper copy)
Believers struggle with these questions. When I was considering the “reformed” question, I had dinner with a seminary student. One of the first questions I asked was “what about babies who die?” That man did not have an answer that satisfied.

This book offers a primer on the questions we might not want to have asked...

I liked this book and will keep a couple of copies on hand to loan. I will, however, make a note to those I loan it to that Storms is a continuationist, and there are chapters on the “charismatic gifts” that make that clear. I may not agree with him on those chapters, but he does make his view clear in a consistent and lets his readers know how he came to those conclusions, which is a good thing.

Bottom line is that this is a good book. I didn't rock my world, but it's a great reference tool, and primer for “tough topics.”

I'm giving it 4/5 stars, since that 5/5 is given only to books that change my life.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great theological work! 20 May 2013
By Chris Moran - Published on Amazon.com

Funny out of the twenty five questions answered in this book the first one I went to read was the one Sam anticipated everyone reading first. This book is very thorough and carefully reasoned with much biblical backing. I love that Sam tackled the cessationist continuationst controversy. He gives twelve bad reasons for being a cessationist and twelve good reasons for being a continuationist which I found compelling and helpful. Also the questions of baptism of the Holy Spirit and speaking in tongues were well argued and very helpful. Sam thanks for writing this book and RE:LIT/Crossway thanks for publishing it!
