Mankind, society, and cultures have progressed over the past two millenniums but the “Church” seems to have not kept up. Is it the Church’s obligation to adapt? Yes, to some degree, it is if it wants to continue to be considered relevant...a significant issue today is reason vs. revelation. But because the Church claims it alone possesses the truth, and truth is immutable (but is, however, subject to context), it seems reluctant to demonstrate willingness to adapt tradition to a changed world. Today we have a great deal of accumulated knowledge and scholarship that at least suggests some of the Church’s teachings are not immune to question—which produces skepticism, which in turn erodes faith. This book is intended to respectfully address these questions from a layman’s perspective, for the potential benefit of other lay-persons of all ages and conviction (or lack thereof).
