Doing Balanced, Gospel-Centered Ministry in Your City

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.
