Fifteen years ago, Tony Campolo's 20 Hot Potatoes That Christians Are Afraid to Touch pushed, pulled, and prodded Christians into serious consideration of controversial but critical issues related to the Christian life. Campolo challenged his more than 150,000 readers to re-think their convictions (and prejudices) and to do something about them!Dubbed by Christianity Today as "the positive prophet" and "a ferocious critic of Christians left and right," Campolo lives up to his reputation in this latest book examining some of today's toughest questions and issues:Is evangelical Christianity anti-feminist? Is our affluent lifestyle at odds with our faith? Is America really in moral decline? Is Islam really an evil religion? Should Christian parents pull their kids out of public schools? Was the war with Iraq a "just" war? Speaking My Mind...Tony Campolo at his best.
