We just finished a series on sharing our faith at Crew. Still hearing stories from what God is doing through that. In fact, over the last 12 hours, Crew baptized a fella, I was able to share the gospel at Starbucks this morning through the telling of my story, and I got an email from a Crew regular who has been engaging a close friend with the gospel. Fun stuff.
Anyway, a very common part of the dialogue is the articulation of well thought out and respectful doubts about Christianity. Good honest reflective questions about our faith. Why is there only one way to God? Why is their suffering in the world. Etc?
So, for those of you who have an intellectual style, this is right up your alley. But all of us need to be able to engage in these types of discussion. There is a great resource out there by Tim Keller called The Reason for God.
I won’t go on and on. Just click the link and discover who Keller is and what the book’s about. Then buy it.
