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:
- What happened in the US in the late 18th c.
- The voluntary element of the great mission work
- 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.
The Task of the Preacher
The lads at Christ the Center interview John Currie of Westminster Theological Seminary about the task of the preacher. A very lively and helpful discussion.
Sinclair Ferguson: The Pastor and His Preaching
Sinclair Ferguson takes a good look at about pastors should think about their preaching. Excellent message by Ferguson, who we’d expect nothing less.
Walking the Old Paths, Albert Martin
Emmanuel Baptist Church of Coconut Creek, Florida invited Albert Martin to speak at their 2010 Men’s Conference. His subject, Walking the Old Paths.
Welcome to a Reformed Church
Christ the Center discusses what it means to be a truly Reformed church, and even talks about whether Reformed Baptists (like me) are truly “reformed”.
