  1. CBD

    This book can largely be summarized in his introductory idea on “double listening”—our need to listen to God’s Word and stay true to its ultimate truth while at the same listening to our world and making sure that the Truth we proclaim is done so in a relevant and contemporary way. There is obviously a lot to this idea and Stott wisely unpacks how that effects many different aspects of Christianity.
    I found (and I agree with most, if not all, his conclusions) that often his suggestions in each chapter came as the middle ground between two extreme sides. It’s an interesting observation in a world so polarized on many things that the best stance us contemporary Christians should take is often the moderate position—rather than reacting to the extreme of the opposition.
