Is there a future for Christianity?
Even in the shadow of the decline of cultural and nominal religion, the future of vibrant Christianity in America is all around us.

Is Christianity the perfect religion?
Whilst Christianity was a religion that can be said to have instigated hatred and violence, this all happened hundreds of years ago. Rather dwelling on the past, one should focus on the present, and at present Christianity is a good religion. If it is the best religion is another question.
Is Christianity the one and only true faith?
Yes, Christianity is the one true religion. That may sound awfully dogmatic and narrow-minded, but the simple truth is that Christianity is the only true religion. Jesus said that He alone was the way to the Father ( John 14:6) – that He alone revealed the Father ( Matt. 11:27; Luke 10:22 ).

What is the difference between Graham and Barth?
Barth has had an impact upon theological thought throughout much of the Western world through the translation of his writings; Graham has had an evangelistic access to the Orient as well as to the Continent through the translation of his preaching. Even to contrast their ministries in terms of the technical versus the simple is to exaggerate their basic differences. Barth’s influence has extended beyond the classroom to the pew, and Graham’s call to decision among university students has been as effective as among the less sophisticated. Barth has delivered a series of Gifford Lectures; Graham has fulfilled a week’s preaching mission at Cambridge. And what theologian today does not covet a broad ministry to the market place? Is not the New Testament ideal (we do not imply the flawlessness of Barth’s’ theology nor of Graham’s evangelism) the theologian-evangelist, whom the apostle Paul supremely exemplifies?
How does Christianity today apply the biblical revelation to the contemporary social crisis?
Christianity Today will apply the biblical revelation to the contemporary social crisis, by presenting the implications of the total Gospel message for every area of life. This, Fundamentalism has often failed to do. Christian laymen are becoming increasingly aware that the answer to the many problems of political, industrial, and social life is a theological one. They are looking to the Christian Church for guidance, and they are looking for a demonstration of the fact that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is a transforming and vital force. We have the conviction that consecrated and gifted evangelical scholarship can provide concrete proof and strategic answers.

How can ecumenicity be fostered?
