In today's culture wars both sides are utterly convinced that they know God's will---and to give in an inch is to surrender. Adam Hamilton explains how the gospel is neither politically conservative nor liberal, Republican nor Democrat; he probes instead the true meaning of discipleship and spiritual maturity in a divided world. Five-session DVD, approx. 97 minutes.
Everyone agrees that America is polarized, with ever-hardening positions held by people less and less willing to listen to one another. No one agrees on what to do about it. One solution that hasnt yet been tried, says Adam Hamilton, is for thinking persons of faith to model for the rest of the country a richer, more thoughtful conversation on the political, moral, and religious issues that divide us.
Offering insights first outlined in his book, Seeing Gray in a World of Black and White, now comes a video resource featuring Adam Hamilton teaching these concepts on DVD for group or individual study. Includes leader's guide and bonus video segments.
