Keller on Being the Church in Our Culture

Here is Tim Keller's call, in a nutshell, for how the church should rightly effect the culture for Christ:

"We need more Christians (1) living long-term in the cities, (2) with a deeper grasp of the gospel, (3) who are creating dynamic counter-cultures inside the city, (4) integrating faith with work, (5) pouring themselves out sacrificially for the common good of the whole city, and (6) contextualizing."

For the details, you can listen to his lecture from the Resurgence Conference on Being the Church in Our Culture.

The other lectures by Keller are on Preaching the Gospel and Doing Justice.
