Being a faithful Christian in contemporary society is no easy task. At every turn we are confronted with difficult ethical and spiritual dilemmas. How are we to live in a manner 'worthy of the gospel of Christ' in the midst of the modern chaos and confusion? In "Following Christ", renowned theologian R. C. Sproul examines the questions that are crucial to Christians living in the modern world: Who is Jesus? Does prayer change things? How can I know God's will? How should I live in this world? Here is theology that moves and breathes in the world in which we live. Dr Sproul challenges us to a biblical and practical understanding of what it means to be mature followers of Jesus Christ.--Back cover.
