Show synopsis How do we reconcile basic Christian theology with modern life? In today's church, more people are apt to come to church spiritually hungry, but theologically uninformed. And, Robert Cueni notes, many are no longer content with being told, "Memorize this list of what Christians believe. There will be a test." This book addresses these concerns by posing broad philosophical questions and then presenting open-ended and non-technical introductions to many core Christian ideas such as atonement, ecclesiology, and prayer. It's an excellent resource for new member classes, adult Sunday school curriculum, a sermon series, or for personal investigation into understanding the Bible and the faith. Among the provocative questions Cueni explores are: - Why Do Good People Do Bad Things? - How Do We Live With Our Differences? - What's Important About Going To Church? - Must Religion And Science Conflict? - If Christ Is The Answer, What Is The Question? R. Robert Cueni is the senior pastor of Country Club Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) a 3,000-member congregation in Kansas City, Missouri. A graduate of Kent State University (B.S.), Christian Theological Seminary (M.Div.), and San Francisco Theological Seminary (D.Min.), Cueni is the author of seven books, including "Dinosaur Heart Transplants: Keys To Renewing A Mainline Church."
