Description

What happens when Latin American liberation theologians are brought into dialogue with Evangelicalism? How has the Church historically responded to issues of poverty? How have different Christian traditions approached service to the poor? Charles Ringma presents what it means to move beyond the call to generosity and charity and to walk the long hard road of practising justice and creating shalom. This lecture was given during Spring School 2010 at Regent College as part of the Evening Public Lecture Series.
