The Skeptic's Guide Series

by Dale Hanson Bourke

A number of key issues today are polarized by political, religious, or cultural assumptions. But not everyone has developed strong opinions about them. Many do not know what they believe and wait for a clear presentation of the facts. Others are so overwhelmed by the complexity of the issues that they choose not to engage, if only because the investment of time seems too great.

In the Skeptic's Guide™ series, Dale Hanson Bourke approaches these sensitive subjects with a few guiding ideas:

  1. Information can be presented simply without being simplistic.
  2. Differing points of view can be acknowledged and respectfully explained.
  3. A topic can be presented in a way that's both inviting to newcomers and immediately beneficial to those who need a concise reference on all the key issues.

Jargon-free and propaganda-free, the easy to read, full-color guides in the Skeptic's Guide series are simple tools to educate the still-undecided on issues dividing our world. If you find fewer conclusions than plain facts here, it is only because there are certain issues on which the facts are much harder to come by.

"Dale Hanson Bourke is unmatched at giving an even-handed and readable account of controversial matters."

Mark Galli, editor, Christianity Today

"It's important to have civil discussions on difficult issues even when we disagree. I'm thankful for the hard work of Dale Hanson Bourke, who sifts through the thorniest issues—HIV/AIDS, global poverty, immigration, even the Israeli-Palestinian conflict—to extract what we need to know not just to get along but to make meaningful change in the world. Her Skeptic's Guides have been important for our church, and I know they will be for your community as well."

Bill Hybels, senior pastor, Willow Creek Community Church
