How do we make the gospel clear and the church relevant to the changing culture in North America? In Confident Witness - Changing World, twenty-two scholars and skilled ministry practitioners explore this complex question not only theoretically but also in practical terms immediately useful to pastors and church leaders. Designed to serve as a springboard for group discussion or for deeper study of the subjects covered, this volume will be a valuable resource for those currently working on the front lines of ministry.
