Christians have lost influence in the culture. Few will argue that point. The question is, can the church regain influence? Our guest on today believes it can. Even though many of our efforts to reverse the trend seem to do more harm than good, Dr. Greg Forster says there are some keys to cultural transformation. What does that mean for you on the job and in your world? Find out on today's Chris Fabry Live.
Miriam Neff wants you to know you are not alone, even if you’ve suffered terrible tragedy, or if you’ve lost the dearest person in your life. Hear about the comforting embrace of God today on Chris Fabry Live.
Greg Forster, Ph.D. serves as the director of the Oikonomia Network at the Center for Transformational Churches at Trinity International University. He has a Ph.D. with distinction in political philosophy from Yale University. He is the author of six books, most recently Joy for the World: How Christianity Lost Its Cultural Influence and Can Begin Rebuilding It (2014), and the co-editor of three books. He is a senior fellow at the Friedman Foundation for Educational Choice; has published numerous articles in scholarly and popular periodicals; speaks at large conferences like the Gospel Coalition and Jubilee; edits the group blog Hang Together; and contributes regularly to other online outlets. His primary scholarly interest is studying how the structures of culture and civilization (family, work, education, business, politics, etc.) respond to the challenge of the gospel and the ambiguous tensions of religious freedom, in order to equip the church to be good citizens of both the Kingdom of God and our human communities.
