Issue 7: The Church Issue (digital download)

$8.00

Product Description

Despite herself, the Church continues to carry the light it is not worthy to carry. Despite herself, the Church continues to offer mercy in a world often bent on defying it. In this issue, we look into her life, where it has been and where it is going.

We have an interview with Molly Worthen about the history of American evangelicalism and its relationship with modernity. We speak with Dr. Rodney Stark about the purported “decline” of worldwide religious belief. We have essays on the Benedict Option and the perfect sermon; the church according to N.W.A., and the church according to the apocalypse. We have a sermon from Nadia Bolz-Weber and some amazing poems, too. And that’s certainly not all.
