Faith in a Changing World

Synopsis

Faith in a Changing World by

This book brings together chapters from two of Lesslie Newbigin's classic works: Discovering Truth in a Changing World and Living Hope in a Changing World. Combined, they present the Christian story as a lens through which to view and understand God and the world, demonstrating that Christianity is a viable way to live one's life today, and that Christians need not retreat to a private world where faith is presumed to be 'mere opinion'. With his unerring focus on placing the Christian faith squarely at the centre of public life and contemporary debate, Newbigin deftly traces a path between Scripture, philosophy and scientific thought to present the gospel as public truth by which our society can find coherence and direction.
