Cultures In Conflict, Part 2

by Ray Vander Laan

How do you live in a culture where the worldview conflicts with Christianity? Learn from Paul as he presents his beliefs to the most powerful court in Athens and settles among the Greco-Romans of Corinth, who valued wealth and class, worship of multiple gods, and decadent pleasure seeking above all else. In this sixteenth volume of That The World May Know®, discover how to live in your own Athens or Corinth–a dechristianized Western world–in a way that glorifies God.

This study will be led by Rob Davis and offered in the Merritt Room of the Trinity Campus on Mondays at 6:30 PM from September 10 to October 15. The book is available at Cokesbury for $9.49.

Comparison Trap

by Sandra Stanley & Charles Stanley
