Eric Metaxas, author of the best-selling books, Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy, and Amazing Grace: William Wilberforce and the Campaign to End Slavery, is the founder of the forum, Socrates in the City: The Unexamined Life is Not Worth Living.
Just below is a two-part video interview with Metaxas on reaching the cultural elites.
What a great interview! thanks Allan.
I particularly liked what Eric said about how we Christians often speak too forcefully about faith and create a high-pressure situation that isn't really conducive to our purpose. It goes along with his closing statement about how we have to trust the Lord to work.
We often get so "out there" in our messages that we become like the cultural elites he's trying to reach that people can't relate and the mission is not fruitful.
Trusting the Lord, to me, means that we have to be ourself. That is often more scary than trying to convince someone about Jesus.
