With Krish Kandiah
Driven by the good intention of making the gospel known to as many people in as short a time as possible, the church has unwittingly communicated a reduced and partial gospel. In this fast moving, emotionally engaging, theologically rich lecture, Dr. Kandiah explores Paul's theology of adoption, demonstrating why it is a vital component of the gospel that is especially important in our current social context.
This lecture is part of our 2017 Summer Evening Public Lecture series.
