The Zondervan Counterpoints Collection: A Charitable Discourse

In necessariis unitas, in dubiis libertas, in omnibus caritas” (In necessary things unity; in uncertain things freedom; in everything compassion.)—Marco Antonio de Dominis

Doctrine matters; there’s no question about it. And yet, we live with the tension of standing firm on the things we believe while other educated and sincere believers interpret and apply Scripture differently. Is it possible to have a serious discussion without the conversation becoming contentious? The Zondervan Counterpoints Collection, currently on Pre-Pub, would say yes.

The Zondervan Counterpoint Collection exposes readers to perspectives written by contributors who affirm the inspiration and authority of Scripture yet vary in their judgment on a number of hot topics.

Each volume features essays on theological topics from a variety of scholars. Many essays are followed up by direct respectful responses/rebuttals from the other contributors. You can also find bibliographies and suggestions for further reading on many of the perspectives discussed.

The Zondervan Counterpoints Collection Upgrade features 3 volumes:
