Introduction

Title: Snubbing God

Author: Victor Kuligin

Publisher: Weaver Book Company

Publication Date: 2017

Format: Print book

Length: 253 pages

OVERVIEW

Our society has forged several valiant attempts at making the Bible and, in turn, God obsolete. Macroevolution, transgenderism, abortion, and several other prevalent topics and ideas try to reshape, crop, or erase God’s original design for creation. In Snubbing God, author Victor Kuligin contrasts our culture’s arguments for contemporary moral issues against those of Scripture. Along with this, he offers readers ways to approach these subjects without hypercritical attitudes, but at the same time, without sacrificing convictions.

Kuligin’s unapologetically candid and thorough arguments earn the book five stars. He devotes an incredible amount of research to every chapter. Not only does he present the opponent’s lines of reasoning in full – using an equal amount of biblical and nonbiblical sources –  but he also anticipates rebuttals and then responds to them in unique ways. Granted, he dedicates too much time on some topics, such as macroevolution, and neglects substantial information on others, such as feminism. Nevertheless, even on the sparser-covered topics, Kuligin’s meticulous cases warrant endorsement.

ASSESSMENT

Rating (1 to 5)

5 stars

Suggested Audience

Christians interested in apologetics, particularly involving cultural hot topics, such as abortion and sexual morality

Christian Impact

Pornography, abortion, homosexuality, environmentalism, and several other moral issues occupy the news, the workplace, and just about everywhere in society. When confronted by these matters, Christians may or may not know how to reply to morally gray areas. Snubbing God offers detailed defenses of what the Bible has to say on these topics.
