  • Summary:

    Addressing such questions as ‘Is the Bible the Literal Word of God or Just a Long, Boring Book?’ this is an easy-to-understand, slightly irreverent approach to theology and the kind of theological musings that many youth and others have today. Being Presbyterian in the Bible Belt acknowledges that though the views expressed in questions like ‘Are you saved?’ ‘Do you have a personal relationship with Jesus?’ and ‘Are you going to heaven?’ are popular in this culture, those are not the only ways to understand being a Christian. Foote and Thornburg help Presbyterian young people articulate their faith and respond to these questions from a mainline point of view.
