Christianity has come into disrepute in modern times for many good reasons. In Tough Questions, Honest Answers: Faith and Religion for 21st-Century Explorers, Cameron Harder rebuilds trust in the way of Jesus without shying away from hard questions about the church's behavior, beliefs, or modern understandings of the universe. Harder's reflections are open, honest, and well-informed by scientific and historical insights but also grounded in the traditions of Israel and Jesus.
