Positive World, Negative World, and Christian Nationalism with Justin Taylor and Collin Hansen

November 8, 2022

Life and Books and EverythingClearly Reformed

The three amigos enter into a meandering conversation about Christian Nationalism and try to discern the level of the world’s hostility to the church in this cultural moment. They also make some political predictions and (most importantly) encourage Christian leaders that, whatever the winds blowing against us, the fundamental realities of ministry have not changed.
