Product Description
There’s a lot of talk today about “culture wars,” but these external conflicts are only a symptom of a deeper problem: there is trouble with the truth. Beneath our differences about the values that should define our culture is a real disagreement about what is true. Those who hold to the traditional beliefs of the Christian faith find themselves at odds with a culture that no longer believes there are universal spiritual or moral truths that apply to everyone. And they grieve that the confusion about what is true is just as strong in the church.

The Trouble with the Truth explores the truth—why it’s in trouble, what the culture tells us about it, and why the church is so confused about it. In an engaging and compelling style, Rob Renfroe reminds us that the Christian life requires commitment to both truth and grace. Like a tightrope walker with a balance bar, we must learn to balance compassion for people and passion for truth, combining them in equal measure just as Jesus did. Readers will examine the essentials about truth and grace, understand the differences between a cultural worldview and a scriptural worldview, and discover how to be instruments of real influence and transformation in our time by following Jesus’s example.

A DVD featuring six interviews with the author and a full leader guide are available for group study.

When mainline pastors and parishioners state: “Well, Jesus is my way, but who am I to say there aren’t other ways for other people”—there’s trouble with the truth. When the president of a mainline denominational seminary states publicly that Christians who feel they need to evangelize persons of other faiths have a wrong view of what it means to follow Jesus—there’s trouble with the truth. Rob Renfroe reminds us that Jesus didn’t lead an “either-or” life—he was committed to both compassion for people and a passion for truth.The Trouble with the Truth explores the essentials about truth and grace in six compelling and engaging DVD classes for adult small groups. The study includes a Leader Guide with outlines for each session, discussion points and questions, activities, and prayers, plus leader helps.
