On the Vacuity of the “The Local Church” Mantra: Apologia pro vita sua

Since coming on staff with InterVarsity I have run into it again and again: How does your ministry fit with that of the local church?  Aren’t you undermining the efforts of the local church?  Aren’t you doing the work that the local church should be doing?  What differentiates your ministry from that of the local … Continue reading

Bob Thune and Will Walker on “Community Idolatry”

(Re-)Reading Matthew Together: Tools for Studying the Gospel of Matthew

So the GCF is currently studying the Gospel According to Matthew at our Tuesday night meetings, and it has been a rich and encouraging time together.  Our study is fairly unique.  Formally speaking, it is just an inductive Bible study.  Nothing fancy.  But, on the other hand, our group approaches the text with historical, literary, … Continue reading
