In this volume, author James Eckman first walks readers throughthe defining moments, theological process, and institutionaldevelopment of the church-from the day of Pentecost, through theReformation and Enlightenment, and to the modern age. He thenexamines a variety of popular belief systems such as Buddhism,Judaism, Islam, Roman Catholicism, and specific cults and thenoffers, in contrast, a compelling look at Christianity'sdistinctives. Finally, Eckman presents the important differencebetween ethics and morals and suggests a modern-day ethicalstrategy that views hot-button issues like abortion, euthanasia,bioethics, war, capital punishment, and the environment through thelens of Scripture.
