From the Publisher
Brief, brilliant treatments of vital aspects of faith and life. A revived publishing initiative and innovative format from Fortress Press's early days, Facets answers contemporary calls for bold thinking, clear ideas, and words that succinctly go to the heart of the religious and moral quest. Facets offers gems of religious writing from leaders who address today's more important or pressing questions biblical, theological, and moral. Each book, offered at an economical price, presents a special angle that uniquely illumines an area or issue.

I think this small book would be very beneficial for a small group discussion or an adult Bible study on the matter.
