We invited our friend, Mike Cosper back on to talk about his article he recently wrote for Christianity Today about Tim Keller. He quotes Tim for saying that the point of contextualization isn't to make the gospel more palatable, but but make the offense of the gospel clear.
We discuss what it means that the gospel is offensive, and what it means to contextualize it. For many years, it has been assumed that the culture in America was a Christian culture, but there's a contextualization we must learn to do when we see the world around us as unaware and confused by any context for the gospel.
