Sometimes the church has been charged with turning its back on the burning issues of the day. If this is the case, this course rectifies that situation for it zeroes in on current matters and explores them from a Biblical perspective. All the hot topics are here: abortion, euthanasia, cloning, capital punishment, and homosexuality. Such important issues as core beliefs and values, as well as ministerial ethics are covered. Beyond that, marriage, divorce, and remarriage are dealt with along with racism and gender issues.

Walking in the Truth handles these subjects both from the viewpoint of Scripture and in an objective manner. Positions on both sides of the issue are put forth and then evaluated based on what the Bible says. The result is a balanced study with strong conclusions about the issues of the day.
