Maybe the most important episode to date!
Once evangelicals were on the frontline of social issues. Now the often take a backseat. What happened? And more importantly, from where might a renew of evangelicalism come?
This episode of Theology on Mission offers an exclusive report with Thich Troung from the Lausanne Young Leaders Gathering as part of a larger conversation about looking to world evangelicalism as a corrective to American evangelicalism. In the previous episode Geoff announced that all of us, even Billy Graham and Christianity Today, were not true evangelicals but were still recovering from a fundamentalist hangover. This episode fills that out and points a way forward.
Our #TheologyGoneBad contest began last week and we announce the first round of those qualifying for the monthly and grand prize.
