Product Description

From the Back Cover

This completely revised edition of the hugely popular work of applied Christianity is from arguably the most influential Christian of the twentieth century and is a major publishing event. Covering a comprehensive number of social and personal subjects, Issues Facing Christians Today is an essential book for any thinking Christian. Written after extensive research and drawing on the fruits of a lifetime of study, this is a major work of analysis and comment. The author is recognised for his intellectual rigour and clear communication skill and this fully revised edition is a tribute to the best in biblical Christianity. New issues in the environment debate are considered afresh with new insights into the care of God's world, the treatment of animals and the use of resources. In the field of relationships, and especially homosexuality, he sets out a compassionate and convincing argument that will cause ripples both inside and outside the Church. Other subjects include warfare, poverty, employment and the role of men and women. Issues Facing Christians Today is vintage Stott which will sell well in all markets. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book... April 25 2008
By J. Hanson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
A few months ago my husband and I were talking about the current political climate with our pastor. As a Christian, I was questioning some of the moral and ethical debates that have been rolling around between the presidential candidates and wondered what the Bible said about the various topics. We had a very intense and deep conversation and our pastor recommended John Stott's "Issues Facing Christians Today" and it has been an incredibly detailed, informative and fantastic read. If anyone is looking for a biblically informative book regarding homosexuality, abortion, terrorism and other current topics, you need to pick up this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent introduction to Christian ethics May 29 2014
By Andrew Frysword - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Stott has been working this ethics book for years (at least in terms of editions). Before he died, he updated this fourth edition in 2006. So, this isn't too far off the mark of what is going on in the world today, though it seems like in many ways the issues the church faces has really sped up in the past five or six years. The snowball is gaining snow as it continues to speed down the hill. So, this is still pretty relevant for an introduction to Christian ethics.

This work is divided into four parts. Part One concerns textual issues, Part Two concerns global issues, Part Three social issues and Part Four personal issues. So, Part One opens up with foundational issues discussing the nature of evangelical concern in its relation to society at large and the Christian witness to the world. The rest of the book moves from big to small. Part Two deals with the big global issues: war and peace, creation care, global poverty and the nature of human rights. Part Three zooms in just a bit focusing on the social issues of work, business relationships, ethnicity and the Christian lifestyle. Finally, Part Four looks at the more common personal issues of Christian living - relation between the sexes, marriage, abortion, biotechnology (by John Wyatt) and same-sex relationship issues.

All chapters are pretty thorough. Stott lived in the UK, so the American reader will get a good look at many of the issues that were going on in England a few years ago (and still today). But he is also knowledgeable of the American context as well. So the reader from the States won't feel far from home. I wish he were still alive today to update this work because I have found this text to be the best introduction to Christian Ethics that I have read so far. I have *almost* no complaints and I am glad to see that John Wyatt wrote the chapter on bioethics. Clearly it's a recognition from a wise man that he was not likely the best choice to write thoroughly on the issue. I might have preferred to see this done with the chapter on economics and global poverty as well, for this is such a tough topic for the theologian to handle. Regardless, this is still an excellent work and I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wise and Insightful Dec 13 2011
By James J. Stewart - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Even though John Stott died in the summer of 2011, this latest revision of his earlier work was fully approved by him before he died. It offers wise and insightful insights for church leaders around the world regarding what challenges are being currently faced and how to deal with those challenges. John Stott's passing means the world's intellectuals have lost a bright light.
