內容簡介 In the last few decades there has been significant religious, social and political change in Australia. The Christian Church which once was at the centre of society has now been moved to the margins. Many Christians not knowing how to respond to the change have either compromised their beliefs in order to be more relevant or have tried to militantly fight back by signing petitions and lobbying government or have just sat at home silently watching not saying or doing anything. "Wise as Serpents; Innocent as Doves" gives us another option. This book does not claim to provide a final or definitive answer to this problem, rather it is intended to start a conversation that can help the Church respond more adequately. A conversation that is based on the Bible. In this book we will look at some important scriptures that address issues regarding how we as a Church can accurately understand, critique and lovingly respond to the religious, social and political changes we are experiencing. This book aims to help you understand how you can be both wise and innocent in your response.
