Epl_2017

Western Christianity often gravitates toward a triumphalist narrative, particularly in the arena of public faith. Though popular, this approach betrays a dysfunctional and warped theological imagination. The book of Lamentations provides a robust biblical response to triumphalism, teaching us to embrace the discipline of lament and cultivating a call for justice in troubled times.

This lecture is part of our 2017 Summer Evening Public Lecture series. 

Rev. Dr. Soong-Chan Rah is the Milton B. Engebretson Associate Professor of Church Growth and Evangelism at North Park Theological Seminary in Chicago, Illinois. He is also an experienced pastor with a passion for intercultural ministry. His publications include The Next Evangelicalism (IVP Books, 2009); Many Colors (Moody Press, 2010). He co-edited Honoring the Generations (Judson Press, 2012). 

Dr. Rah will be teaching the class "Cultural Intelligence for a Changing Church" from July 3–7, 2017 as part of our 2017 Summer Programs. Learn more at rgnt.net/summer.
