9780281054282: Uncommon Sense: God's Wisdom for Our Complex and Changing World

This work is written for the increasing number of people who are aware of the contradictions implicit in traditional approaches to issues in art, law, science, business, politics, education, the family and other vital areas. The authors are concerned with the process of wisdom development, aiming to assist the personal development of a wisdom that will become instinctive and govern actions in a spontaneous, godly manner. Illustrated with both ancient and modern stories, the book lets us discover how God's original wisdom for the world has transformative power even for today's fast-paced, pluralist culture.
