Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Issues Facing Christians Today immediately became essential reading for all thinking Christians when it was first published. It has now been revised and fully updated to tackle the diverse array of social and moral responsibilities facing us today.

This new edition builds on the previous one, examining the contemporary realities of war, the trauma of unemployment, the changing face of human rights, our environmental awakening from Rio to Kyoto and many more contemporary challenges.

As the culture wars continue this book will remain an essential contribution, helping to define Christian social and moral thinking well into the new millennium. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
A few months ago my husband and I were talking about the current political climate with our pastor. As a Christian, I was questioning some of the moral and ethical debates that have been rolling around between the presidential candidates and wondered what the Bible said about the various topics. We had a very intense and deep conversation and our pastor recommended John Stott's "Issues Facing Christians Today" and it has been an incredibly detailed, informative and fantastic read. If anyone is looking for a biblically informative book regarding homosexuality, abortion, terrorism and other current topics, you need to pick up this book.

Even though John Stott died in the summer of 2011, this latest revision of his earlier work was fully approved by him before he died. It offers wise and insightful insights for church leaders around the world regarding what challenges are being currently faced and how to deal with those challenges. John Stott's passing means the world's intellectuals have lost a bright light.

John Stott is a world renowned and respected author. He brings thoughtful balance to the issues of how deeply Christians should participate in today's issues of war, Atomic armaments and political partisanship. This is the kind of book that helps those who need it least, and is ignored by those who need it most!
