The Primary Purpose of the Church

Foreign missions is undoubtedly one of the primary tasks of the church. After all, it was Christ who commanded his church to evangelize the nations in the Great Commission.  Moreover, we know that the apostle Paul was one who had a great zeal for missions.

Book Review: Generous Justice by Tim Keller

Last year saw a flurry of books on the mission of Christians in the world. Those up to speed with the rapidly growing list of WSC faculty titles will remember David VanDrunen’s two significant contributions, Natural Law and the Two Kingdoms (Eerdmans) and Living in God’s Two Kingdoms (Crossway). More broadly, other works which have lately entered into the conversation are James Davison Hunter’s To Change the World, David Platt’s Radical, and Christopher J.H. Wright’s The Mission of God’s People. Whether you’re a plumber, college student, housewife, lawyer, or seminarian trying to think through issues of Christianity and culture, there is no shortage of accessible and helpful guides.
