By "old school" we do not mean liberalism, fundamentalism, or evangelicalism but rather a set of specific attitudes, beliefs, and practices--and the subcultures in which they thrive--that emerged in the modern era and were defined by modern concerns. We use "old school" to refer to a conceptual mode of what is no longer an accurate representation of the biblical God within popular culture and "new school" to refer to the ideal solution based on Scripture. Our objective is to emphasize the importance of abandoning old-school errors, which most devout Christians agree needs to be done, and live out the new school implications. (pp. 11-12)
Frequently Avoided Questions is a thoughtful, challenging, refreshing look at a range of questions that trouble people. There are some surprises in this book for everyone. Frequently Avoided Questions is a must read for those who want to think about what Christianity needs to be like if it is going to move towards authentic faith that is able to relate to the real world that we live in. I highly recommend it!
