Holding Fast to Your Faith in a Relativistic World

May 10, 2008

Read an interview with the authors. 

Publisher's Description:

The current cultural climate does not encourage or equip Christians to remain tethered to the truth, but this book will. The authors focus on those "things that cannot be shaken" (Heb. 12:27)—specifically providing biblical responses to the concerns that Christians frequently encounter in the dorm room, the classroom, and the workplace.

It's a quickly changing world out there. A world enamored with anything new. But all that "progress" comes with a price: we now live in a relativistic culture that appears to be missing an anchor. All authority is questioned. Truth has been thrown out with traditional views. And nothing seems sure. Especially not matters of faith.

Not even for Christians.

So how do we find our spiritual moorings? In environments that seek to undermine faith at every turn, how do we solidify our thinking so that our faith will not waver? By holding fast to the "things that cannot be shaken" (Heb. 12:27), say authors Scott Oliphint and Rod Mays.

For every challenge you're likely to face in the dorm, the classroom, even the workplace . . .

  • Is Christianity true?
  • Can faith really help in my struggle against sin?
  • What does God have to do with my relationships?
  • How can I know what's real?

Things That Cannot Be Shaken equips you to respond biblically, with certainty and confidence. It will also challenge you to set aside those sins that cling so closely and to let what cannot be shaken become the defining characteristic of your walk with Christ.
