"Many people are rejecting our gospel today not because they perceive it to be false, but because they perceive it to be trivial. People are looking for an integrated worldview which makes sense of all their experience."-John Stott
Preaching the simple gospel isn't as simple as it used to be. To be sure the Holy Spirit is still actively convicting the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment (John 16:7-11). But the plausibility structures of this generation have drifted farther away from theistic categories. So our job is to help them connect the dots. Help them connect the questions they are asking with the explanatory power of the Christian worldview. That's what everyday ambassadors do. Not only is there good evidence that Christianity is true, it also best explains our experience of reality. In my new book Think Christianly, I try to paint a vision for what that looks like at our intersection.
