Learn to balance compassion for people while maintaining a passion for truth.

There’s a lot of talk today about “culture wars,” but these external conflicts are only a symptom of a deeper problem: there is trouble with the truth. Beneath our differences about the values that should define our culture is a real disagreement about what is true. Those who hold to the traditional beliefs of the Christian faith find themselves at odds with a culture that no longer believes there are universal spiritual or moral truths that apply to everyone. And they grieve that the confusion about what is true is just as strong in the church.

The Trouble with the Truth explores the truth—why it’s in trouble, what the culture tells us about it, and why the church is so confused about it. In an engaging and compelling style, Rob Renfroe reminds us that the Christian life requires commitment to both truth and grace. Like a tightrope walker with a balance bar, we must learn to balance compassion for people and passion for truth, combining them in equal measure just as Jesus did. Readers will examine the essentials about truth and grace, understand the differences between a cultural worldview and a scriptural worldview, and discover how to be instruments of real influence and transformation in our time by following Jesus’s example.

The DVD contains six video segments of approximately 10-15 minutes each for use during the group sessions. Sessions include:

Full of Grace and Truth
Why Grace Is Essential and Truth Matters
Why Our Culture Values Compassion Over Truth: Understanding Three Worldviews
Comparing the Cultural Worldview to a Scriptural Worldview
The New Absolutes
What Does Love Require?

All video sessions are closed captioned.
