On today’s Equipping You in Grace show, Dave Jenkins and Dr. Bruce Ashford discuss the importance of understanding how worldview, gospel, and missions relate to and emerge from the biblical storyline, along with his book with Heath Thomas, The Gospel of Our King: Bible, Worldview, and the Mission of Every Christian (Baker, 2019).

  • A brief overview of Creation, Fall, Redemption, and Restoration.
  • The importance of understanding how worldview, gospel, and mission relate to and emerge from the biblical storyline.
  • How the Bible’s radical monotheism help Christians understand the nature of idolatry in our Western world.
  • In what way every aspect of the Christian life and mission—union with Christ and the church, gospel words, and deeds, deeply, and profoundly social.
  • In what way every aspect of Christian mission is unavoidably cultural.
  • How the international thread of the mission of God is in colorful display in the nation of Israel, the life and ministry of Jesus, and the nature of Christ’s church.
