Christianity is declining in the West. How will the church respond? Redeemer City to City's "How to Reach the West Again" podcast takes the insights of author and pastor Timothy Keller's book of the same name—and explores them in greater detail with a host of guest ministry leaders. Join us as we examine ourselves, our culture, and Scripture to work toward a new missionary encounter with Western culture that will make the gospel both attractive and credible to a new generation.

Episode 4: A Category-Defying Social Vision

Tim Keller casts a vision for a Christian community marked by the early church’s ethical commitments, which don’t easily fit into modern categories of “liberal” or “conservative”. Guest Sam Allberry explores how even though Christianity’s sexual ethic seems like a challenge to both the church and broader culture, it holds fundamental good for our benefit and affirms our self-worth. Then, Efrem Smith discusses the obstacles to creating multi-ethnic ministry, the importance of different cultures of Christians interacting with each other, and how the church can attain a biblical view of justice rather than views given to us by cultural rhetoric.
