Our Missional God 14

posted by xscot mcknight

Any reading of the Old Testament immediately confronts a significant “missional” problem: the OT is not “missional”. Chris Wright, however, argues that the great covenant moments of the OT have within them the missional theme. So today we look at […]

Here is a note from a sensitive reader, and one that feels the weight of the anabaptist tradition in approaching the election this year. I am posting the letter today and I will respond one or two times over the […]
