With the passing of Dr. Tim Keller, Chris Brooks shares one of the last conversations they had together on a topic of extreme significance if we are to make a difference for the Gospel. It is the importance of Forgiveness. Dr. Tim Keller says there is no future for the church or our nation without it! We’ll talk about forgiveness and honor the legacy of Dr. Tim Keller on this edition of Equipped.
