The second installment of the Cross Examinations conversation has just been posted at Patheos.com. The latest question is:
“The nature and import of social justice ministry has been
attacked and debated frequently in recent weeks. To approach the issue
constructively: what exactly IS the proper relationship between
evangelistic and social justice ministries?”
Once again, a diverse group of evangelical thinkers addresses this question in relatively short answers. Participating are:
Timothy Dalrymple, Manager of the Evangelical Portal at Patheos.
Douglas Groothuis, Professor of Philosophy at Denver Theological Seminary.
Danny Hall, Senior Pastor at Valley Community Church in Pleasanton, California.
Daniel Harrell, Senior Minister at Colonial Church in Edina, Minnesota.
Brian McLaren, founding pastor at Cedar Ridge Community Church in Spencerville, Maryland.
Kelly Monroe-Kullberg, author, campus minister, and founder of the Veritas Forum.
Mark D. Roberts, Senior Director and Scholar-in-Residence for Laity Lodge.
Yes, you’ll notice my name as the caboose on this train.
Once again, I’d encourage you to read all the selections. But if, in your impatience, you want to jump to mine, here’s the link. And, once again, I’d urge you to think about your own answer to this question before you see what others say.
