Sam Allberry on the Queen’s Death and the Church’s Future

“We’re learning what she meant to us by having to cope with her absence.”

So says Sam Allberry, British author, speaker, pastor, and apologist as he reflects on the death of Queen Elizabeth II during this week’s episode of The Russell Moore Show. Allberry and Moore talk about the role the queen filled in the British and global imaginations, what it means for the Elizabethan age to end, and the type of leadership the queen embodied.

They also discuss the Church of England, trends in American and British Christianity, and interdependence in the global church.
