Every congregation in North America has victims, survivors, and perpetrators of violence in its midst. Many in the church, while supporting marital and family connections, do not know how to address abuse. Many ministers are searching for theological and ethical perspectives with which to frame an effective pulpit, teaching, and pastoral ministry.Telling the Truth assembles the wisdom of experts from across disciplines and denominations. Biblical and theological issues are analyzed by Johanna Van Wijk-Bos, Shawn Copeland, and Wendy Farley. Pastoral resources are presented by Marie M. Fortune, James Poling, Nancy Ramsay, and David Goatley. Preaching strategies are discussed by Barbara Patterson and John S. McClure. Four sermons are also included to provide effective models for ministering against sexual and domestic violence.

Right now, truth is under attack, and much is at stake. Perhaps no one in America is more passionate than John MacArthur about exposing those who are mounting this attack?especially those bringing the assault right into the church. There is no middle ground?no safe zone for the uncommitted in this war. The battle for truth is raging, and this book reveals: The pitfalls of postmodern thinking Why the Emerging Church Movement is inherently flawed Past skirmishes in the Truth War and their effect on the Church The importance of truth and certainty in a postmodern society How to identify and address the errors and false teachings smuggled into churches "[The postmodern age] is the age of no truth, an age that has reached a point of deadly fatigue when it comes to facing the truth?a generation that no longer believes truth can be known. Dr. John MacArthur knows better, and he is armed with the courage to confront this age with a bold defense of truth. . . . His argument is compelling, his defense of truth is brilliant, and his concern for the church is evident on every page. The evangelical church desperately needs this book, and it arrives just in time." ?R. Albert Mohler Jr., President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

A life of sin can place us on a dangerous path. Many people do not recognize their destructive behavioral patterns, but for others this is a life-style. Sin has no boundaries, and it is capable of destroying the lives of very good people. This book will engage the reader and will expose those things which may have a negative influence in a person's life. It is important to recognize that all sins are forgiven when we place our trust in God. This book contains specific topics designed to promote journaling. While some of these topics are very sensitive, they will also open the door for healing as God will use this time to touch your heart. I hope you enjoy this intimate time with God. Dave Payton was born in Portsmouth, Ohio, 1957, and moved to Arizona at the age of five. He was raised in South Phoenix. He grew up in a predominately Hispanic neighborhood. It was in the streets that his lessons were learned. He acquired a different perspective on life as God showed him how to accept others for who they really are. Through much adversity and help along the way, he was able to fight his way to a better life. His tough life gave him compassion for those who suffered. His passion for the less fortunate will always be a soft spot in his heart as he can only thank God for saving him.
