WANT TO RESPECTFULLY DIALOGUE with your friends and relatives on the Christian Right on social issues while maintaining cordiality and friendships? The book LET'S DIALOGUE WITH THE CHRISTIAN RIGHT: A Syllabus of Strategies, Moral Values, and Biblical Citations - by Peter Wong - is available for free on MicahsCallTM. Read on!
UNPREPARED, INADEQUATE, FRUSTRATED? Have you ever felt unprepared, inadequate, and/or frustrated while trying to articulate your progressive Christian views to your friends and relatives on the Christian Right? Do you studiously avoid such encounters? Would you like to get better prepared with an "organizing framework" - modeled after the Socratic dialogues - that weaves thoughtful questions with relevant facts and Jesus' teachings? This book is intended for you!
CENTRALITY OF JESUS' TEACHINGS! The dialogue "organizing framework" must be based on a common set of Christian moral values, otherwise, we are just talking past each other with no real engagement of ideas. Because as Christians we acknowledge Jesus as Lord, his teachings must necessarily be our common and supreme moral guide. Learn more in the book!
CATALOGUE OF JESUS' TEACHINGS: What did Jesus teach that is applicable to the social issues of our times? Want a catalogue of Jesus' teachings on moral values? This book is intended for you!
BETTER UNDERSTAND THE CHRISTIAN RIGHT! Numerous academics and religious commentators have proposed various theories and explanations that attempt to explain the motivations and mindset underlying the Christian Right's actions and behaviors. Learn more in the book!
NUMEROUS EXAMPLE DIALOGUES! Example dialogues are presented on "hot button" issues such as: abortion, same-sex marriage, stem cell research, global warming, immigration, and universal health insurance. Study and adapt these example dialogues for your own use!
