The Bible presents us with difficult statements about money and finance, social justice, marriage and divorce, sex, religion and politics, and other areas of life. Many of us pick and choose among them, feeling free to treat some of the Bible's moral rulings as absolutes but ignoring those we find unacceptable.

Are there areas where we can ignore what the Bible says? Is the Bible is simply wrong about some things? Are we free to argue that we understand things better than the biblical writers did an so can disregard them? Or must we accept what the Bible tells us, no matter how difficult it might be to put into practice?

Kraus explores questions of prosperity, treatment of enemies, the death penalty, economics, social justice, sexual behavior, and others.

The author isn't interested in convincing the reader of any given interpretation, but rather the context of the biblical message as a whole when considering controversial passages. This means demonstrating both supporting and contrary aspects of popular understandings, so that the reader comes away understanding both the strengths & weaknesses of those interpretations.
