It’s tempting to see some verses in the Bible as either-or statements—one must be true and the other must be false. End of story. Case closed.
But the paradoxes in the Word of God are different. They are both-and statements, at once seeming contradictory but both being wholly and completely true. As Christians, we live in this tension, embracing that two sides of the same coin can be true at the same time.
Faith That Sees through the Culture provides lenses to evaluate and bring clarity to these paradoxes. These lenses, when focused, aligned, and coordinated, open whole new vistas for faith to see more clearly and be lived out more effectively in our culture.
“Thoughtful and highly accessible. . . A fresh conversation about seeing through the eyes of faith. ”
Rev. John J. Bombaro, Ph.D. LCDR, CHC, USNR, Grace Lutheran Church, San Diego
