Just as the commercial market is full of lofty promises and glossed over particulars, so it is with the marketplace of ideas. Too often the church itself resorts to catchphrases and slogans, to elementary truths over spiritually mature ones, to rhetoric over reason, and concise responses instead of complete answers. The danger of this is that the church may become nothing more than a peddler of platitudes and its followers may become disillusioned. This book aims to help uncover the real deal behind common Christian bywords, and the real truth underlining prevalent Christian truisms, in the hope that we might know God better, and discover the richness and fullness that is in Christianity.
