Synopsis: NOTE: New 2016 Second Edition also available, includes group study guideMarriage and sexuality, religious freedom, abortion, assisted suicide, stem cell research and human trafficking: The stands we take and the choices we make on such vital issues, as individuals and as a nation, matter now and for eternity.Faith Steps encourages and equips people of faith to winsomely engage friends and the culture on vital issues--not as partisans but as ambassadors.We can communicate life-honoring and moral perspectives to secular audiences, by appealing to self-interest, outlining the harms and benefits of choices.Decisively rejecting the stifling notion that Christians should remain mute on controversial social issues and shun the political arena, Faith Steps reveals how courageous and compassionate engagement can help our neighbors and transform culture.Drawing on the author's many years of experience in Washington, DC in government relations and communications, the book provides practical, in-the-trenches communications strategies to address and engage individuals and society on the most controversial and consequential issues of our day.What others are saying about Faith Steps:Tony Perkins, President, Family Research Council: "Jonathan Imbody is a longtime champion of life, liberty, family, and faith.
