Part 2 of 2

An Urgent Plea For The Church To Return To Its Mission
We are living in a time when we desperately need to engage our culture with the only message that has any hope of transforming it. Yet, many Christians have pushed aside the cross in order to fight the world on its own terms and with its own strategies.
