Can Christians engage culture in a way that is both redemptive and meaningful?
Christians are looking for answers on how to purposefully interact with today's culture. There are many different perspectives on the level of interaction, the plan of interaction, and the perspective for interaction. We can continue to allow these different perspectives to confuse or even divert us from even attempting to connect and engage in meaningful ways. Or, we can move forward openly into the conversation and see what the Bible says about the intersection between faith and culture.
There are Christians who avoid talking about this convergence all together. In this informative and practical conversation, Dr. Gregory Thornbury dives into the questions and Biblical answers surrounding culture, the Gospel, evangelicalism, relativism, conservatism, the arts, and more. Enjoy!
