Book Of The Month For November 2018: Clearly Christian: Following Jesus in this Age of Confusion
Clearly Christian: Following Jesus in this Age of Confusion
By A. Trevor Sutton
2018 / Paperback / 160 Pages
Let’s just admit we’re all a little confused.
Networks connect people around the world, yet we struggle to remember our next-door neighbor’s name. We have access to more information than ever, but it hasn’t solved the problems of discrimination, prejudice, or self-absorption. We have an excess of many things—gadgets, technology, cat memes—but nothing is more abundant than confusion.
This confusion also swirls around and seeps into the Christian faith. Non-Christians look at Christianity through layers of misinformation, and even Christians can get lost in a fog of opinions mixed with truth, confused about who they are and what they believe.
Clearly Christian takes the confusion head-on. A. Trevor Sutton dispels one falsehood about Christianity after another. In this age of counterfeits and fakes, the world desperately needs clear Christianity: the real love and forgiveness of God, who is the Savior for real sinners.
