Complex issues are often avoided within the church. Many times difficult questions are greeted with defensive responses, eventually leading to arguments and division within a congregation. This book offers Christians the opportunity to explore, reflect, and discuss some of these hard questions together without judgment or conflict.
Not Off Limits allows the reader to think critically about some of the complex questions facing the church today without fear or discomfort. Christians must learn to see issues from various points of view as well as appreciate the genuine Christian devotion of the people with whom they differ. Not Off Limits teaches its readers to explore these issues together, since true unity cannot exist until it has weathered conflict.
