Scribble: How Christianity Lost Its Cultural Influence

“I recently had the privilege of sitting down with Greg Forster, an articulate and fascinating thinker, to talk about his new book, Joy for the World: How Christianity Lost Its Cultural Influence and Can Begin Rebuilding It, in the Cultural Renewal series, edited by Tim Keller and Collin Hansen. (You can read Keller’s foreword here.)

00:49 – What are the two ways that Christianity has related to culture in history?
11:21 – Why did you title the book Joy for the World? Why is joy central to our witness?
14:54 – What can pastors do to help their people joyfully influence culture?”
