Penitent Prophets

Penitent Prophets

When it comes to the culture war, we must fight for what we believe in and repent of our own failings.

Overview

As tensions rise over hot-button issues such as gay marriage and abortion, the Bible's fundamental disparity with the radical individualism of the world often stands in the way of helpful dialogue. In this study, we look at how we can frame our understanding of such issues, and how we can understand our role in the cultural conversation.
