I am excited today to accept the invitation from Christianity Today to join their team as public theologian and as director of a new venture, the Christianity Today Public Theology Project, which is devoted to cultivating a forward-looking, joyful, consistent gospel witness.
But we must also remember the mission Jesus has given his church. The gospel we preach is about certain hope in a crucified and resurrected Savior. We must face this crisis and proclaim this gospel with the kind of confidence found only in the one who has overcome the grave.
We live in a fearful and cowardly time. The crisis we face is not a crisis of clarity but a crisis of courage.
