In Involvement, Volume II: Social and Sexual Relationships in the Modern World, John Stott confronts today's sticky and difficult issues with courage and determination, convinced that as disciples following Christ as Lord, we cannot avoid the problems all around us. As members of His Church, we have been redeemed by grace, set apart to be a redeeming force in the world today. Dr. Stott discusses the many facets of each critical issue, including homosexuality, industrial discrimination, apartheid, divorce, unemployment, and feminism, tracing the history of various stances and presenting arguments both pro and con with regards to the specific question. He examines each in light of Scripture, challenging you to find answers for yourself and your church for dealing specifically with each concern.
Dr. Stott cites many examples of how concerned Christians have offered resources, time, professional expertise, possessions, and service to remedy some of the pressing social ills in their areas. In conclusion, he calls for strong Christian leadership that will provide godly direction and hope to a world that is blinded and scarred by sin. Through John Stott's thoughtful and comprehensive insights, Involvement, Volume II will help to "clarify biblical, principles so that we can think straight and take whatever action is appropriate to our position and responsibility."
