Authority is an unpopular concept in our culture and it has been a source of division in the church. But it's not something we can live without. Why do people see things so differently? How do we deal with competing authorities? What's essential and what's not essential to the Christian faith? Michael Patton walks us through the Stage of Truth, helping us to see that we all have a particular arrangement of authorities that inform our beliefs. He also talks us through how to look at the essentials and non-essentials of the Christian faith.
