From back cover:

The Bible has many passages that are not fully understood, so we often ignore or overlook them. Troublesome Bible Passages addresses 23 of these Scriptures in a way that brings out the transforming message in each passage. These troublesome passages deal with theological issues, ethnical issues, and practical issues. Troublesome Bible Passages relates the ethical issues of biblical times to contemporary ethics.

My thoughts:

While the book addresses many topics including forgiveness, the Ten Commandments, and the suffereing of innocents (just to name a few), I can't say that I agree with the authors' interpretations on all of them. However, it does seem to be a biblically sound perspective overall, and certainly includes thought-provoking considerations. Worth reading!
