Show synopsis This book covers some of the most hotly debated controversies in the evangelical church today: health & wealth gospel, lordship salvation, the end times, radical feminism, divorce & remarriage, counseling & psychology, reconstructionism, abortion, political involvement, women in church leadership. As society drifts from its moorings, it's more important than ever to know why we believe what we do -- and be able to talk to fellow believers in a way that demonstrates, not destroys, unity.Great Divides addresses ten issues that come between believers and undermine the unity and effectiveness of the Body of Christ. By examining the major positions held by evangelicals today, it will encourage people to articulate their own positions, understand the positions of others, and act upon the issues faithfully."Our faith is not simply the study of God and His ways," writes Ronald Nash, "but the application of His ways to our lives. Learning to think great thoughts about God, and learning to get along with His people, as varied and different as they are. If we're to seek unity, we must at the very least seek to understand how other Christians view these important issues."
