|SHAPED BY THE GOSPEL: WHAT IS GOSPEL-CENTERED MINISTRY?
Many churches claim to be gospel-centered but do not have a ministry that is shaped by, centered on, and empowered through the gospel. The implications of the gospel have not yet worked their way into the fabric of how that church does ministry. Gospel-centered ministry is more theologically driven than program driven. To pursue it, we must spend time reflecting on the essence, the truths, and the very patterns of the gospel itself. The gospel is neither religion nor irreligion, but something else entirely- a third way of relating to God through grace. Timothy Keller addresses several current discussion and conflicts about the nature of the gospel and shows how faithful preaching of the gospel leads to individual and corporate renewal.

| SERVING A MOVEMENT: IT TAKES A MOVEMENT TO REACH A CITY
Today many Christian leaders are struggling to adapt to an increasingly post-Christian culture without compromising orthodox theology. How do we communicate the concepts of sin, grace and atonement in our culture and context? Timothy Keller looks at the nature of the church’s mission and its relationship to the work of individual Christians in the world. He examines what it means to be a missional church today and how churches can practically equip people for missional living. Churches need to intentionally cultivate an integrative ministry that connects people to God, to one another, to the needs of the city, and to the culture around us. Finally, he highlights the need for intentional movements of churches planting new churches that faithfully proclaim God’s truth and serve their communities.

|LOVING THE CITY : BIBLICAL FOUNDATIONS FOR ENGAGING OUR CULTURE
Even if you don’t go to the city to minister, the city is coming to you. Because global culture is increasingly urban, churches need a theological vision for ministry that is contextually aware of urban culture. Timothy Keller looks at the biblical foundations for contextualizing the gospel as we communicate to the culture in a way that is both respectful and challenging. He articulates the key characteristics of a city vision, showing how the city develops as a theme throughout Scripture, from its anti-God origins, to its strategic importance for mission, to its culmination and redemption in glory. Finally, he examines the need for thoughtful cultural engagement, unpacking four models for engaging culture, showing the strengths and weaknesses of each approach and emphasizing a blended approach that balances the key insights of each.
