In this blast from the past, J. Warner answers listener email and addresses the nature of the Gospel Message. Is the purpose of the Gospel to transform and restore the planet, or is the purpose of the Gospel to rescues fallen individuals? Are these two goals and consequences of the Gospel message mutually exclusive? J. Warner also discusses the importance of rationality in the Christian life, the monetization of apologetics efforts, moral grounding and ethics training, and the distinct and unique nature of the Christian Worldview.
For more information about the reliability of the New Testament gospels and the case for Christianity, please read Cold-Case Christianity: A Homicide Detective Investigates the Claims of the Gospels. This book teaches readers ten principles of cold-case investigations and applies these strategies to investigate the claims of the gospel authors. The book is accompanied by an eight-session Cold-Case Christianity DVD Set (and Participant’s Guide) to help individuals or small groups examine the evidence and make the case.
