Contrary to popular belief, Christianity is not declining in the modern world. It has long been the world's most popular belief system, and looks set to remain so. Rather than dismissing Christianity, therefore, we must wrestle with its claims. This book explores 12 hard questions that seem to undermine the Christian faith: the existence of suffering, the Bible's teaching on gender and sexuality, the reality of judgment, the authority of Scripture, the success of science, and more. Drawing on state-of-the-art academic research, personal stories, and deep scriptural excavation, this book argues that--when looked at more closely--what first seemed like roadblocks to faith actually become signposts.

When "I Don't Know" is a Good Answer, and When It's Not

Why We Must Not Read All of Scripture Literally

2 Heated Cultural Debates the Bible Addresses

4 Ways Jesus Has Bad PR

The Greatest Movement for World Racial Diversity in All of History

Discard Christianity, Discard Human Equality
