Marriage, and the Very Meaning of Right and Wrong

Publisher's Book Information
Twenty years ago, not one nation on earth had legal same-sex marriage. Now, access to same-sex
marriage is increasingly seen as a basic human right. In a matter of less than a generation, western cultures have
experienced a moral revolution.
Dr. R. Albert Mohler examines how this transformation occurred, revealing the underlying cultural shifts behind
this revolution: the acceptance of divorce culture, liberation of sex from reproduction, the prevalence of heterosexual
cohabitation, the normalization of homosexuality, and the rise of the transgender movement. He then offers a deep
look at how the Bible and Christian moral tradition provide a comprehensive understanding upon which Christians
can build their personal lives, their marriages, church ministry, and cultural engagement.
Dr. Mohler helps Christians in their understanding of the underlying issues of this significant cultural shift
and how to face the challenge of believing faithfully, living faithfully, and engaging the culture faithfully in
light of this massive change.

He provides clarity to multiple issues in our day that are pressing. Dr. Mohler addresses the many problems that
are prevalent in our day and within the cultural revolution. He addresses things such as contraceptives, divorce,
sex outside of marriage, same-sex marriage, and the sexual revolution. Dr. Mohler looks at the cultural and examines
our decline on multiple fronts. From who the Church has engaged in the public square, to how the family engages
in the home, Christians have failed to be involved. Dr. Mohler has provided in the last chapter of this book 30
questions that may be asked within the growing sexual revolution, this chapter is really helpful so the reader
can process the information given in this book. Dr. Mohler shows how the church has been silent on many of these
issues, rather than being vocal for what God says in His Word. Since God is not silent, the Church should not be
