Ancient Laws & Contemporary Controversies by Cheryl B. Anderson
Facilitated by Anna Voinovich & Pastor Mi-Sook
Many Christians ignore most Old Testament laws as obsolete or irrelevant. Others claim to honor them but in fact, pick and choose among them very selectively in support of specific agendas. It is a basic tenet of Christian doctrine that the faith is contained in both the Old and the New Testament. If the law is ignored, an important aspect of the faith tradition is denied. Ancient Laws & Contemporary Controversies by Cheryl Anderson tackles this problem head on, attempting to answer the question whether the laws of the Old Testament are authoritative for Christians today, especially as it applies to women, the poor and homosexuality.
