“As God has sent me so I send you” John 20:21
The new mission field
We’re not in Christendom anymore. North American culture is no longer cozy with Christianity. Indeed, the mission field now starts in our own back yard.
So how do we preach the gospel among people who are unaware of church or even hostile to it as well as to those barely churched and those thoroughly churched who sit in the pews? And how do we do it without reducing the gospel to a PR slogan that sells Christianity?
These are serious questions facing today’s preachers.
