Our elders are wrestling through a biblical understanding of the church’s role when it comes to issues of justice and mercy. Books like Tim Keller’s Generous Justice
On my way home from Tyndale I listened to Kevin DeYoung’s recent message Rethinking the Mission of the Church. It’s a nuanced presentation: DeYoung’s position would be easy to caricature. It’s definitely worth a listen, no matter what side of the debate you’re on. I really appreciated it.
Keller’s book, posts like this one by Jared Wilson, and the talk by DeYoung point to the importance of the issue, and to how important it is to think clearly and carefully as we wrestle with this it.
