Rick Shrader‘s Review:
This 2009 book is done by MacArthur and other staff at Grace Community Church. I found it to be very helpful in a number of different areas that affect the local church. It is divided into four sections: Entertainment and Leisure; Morality and Ethics; Politics and Activism; and Tragedy and Suffering. I thought it was especially good on areas of abortion (making Biblical arguments for life in the womb), marriage and divorce (MacArthur has always taken the “innocent party” view), homosexuality, euthanasia and suicide, social and political involvment, global warning and environment, and also guidelines for the why and how of suffering. This is a helpful book for comparing Scripture with Scripture in controversial areas.
