The New Shape of World Christianity

Mark Noll talks about his new book The New Shape of World Christianity with the panel at Christ the Center, along with guest Darryl G. Hart.

The main point of the book is that American Christianity is important for the world primarily because the world is coming more and more to look like America.  Noll argues that the key to understanding the new shape of global Christianity lies in understanding the shifts and changes Christianity underwent when it moved from Europe to America.  Noll focuses on three main factors:

  1. What happened in the US in the late 18th c.
  2. The voluntary element of the great mission work
  3. The type of faith that resulted.

Powlison: God’s Grace and Your Suffering

I have gained tremendous respect for David Powlison over the years. He seems to be one of the few level headed Biblical counselors among a confusing lot.  In this message he talks about a very challenging subject that we all have, or will, face in our lives, either ourselves, or in counseling others: Our suffering and God’s grace.
