Communicating Christ in a Skeptical World

Winter courses at Tyndale Theological Seminary 17 – 28 January

IC670 Communicating Christ in a Skeptical World 3 ECTS

The way reality is perceived and explained has changed enormously over the years, greatly impacting our modern and late modern world and societies. The result is that we live in a very skeptical world. This course will aim to identify key areas of our skeptical world and how diverse this world has become. It will then suggest approaches that can more effectively communicate Christ in the 21st century.

Some methods and approaches to evangelism that worked in the past may not work effectively in the present. We will discover that no one approach is sufficient to communicate Christ effectively in the 21st century. Today, with the rise of secularism coupled with the increasing ease of travel and mass communication, we are exposed to many different cultures, worldviews and religions, and therefore we have to be flexible. We will rethink how to communicate a timeless message to a skeptical world.

13:30 – 15:30 Monday-Friday

Why is happiness not equally widespread?

Here is the link of the vlog

We went to have some conversations last week with students in Delft. We met a Dutch Ph.D. student. When we asked “what do you think about God?” she said that one difficulty she has is the following: if an all-powerful God exists why is then happiness not equally spread? Here some reflections we have

Here are some points we have to include while trying to find a good explanation about this ‘widespread unhappiness’ in our world:

  • what does it not mean that God is all-powerful?
  • what is happiness and why is it not equally widespread?
  • If God exists does he care? in what way?
  • what did Jesus say and do about the unhappiness in the world?

This is an open conversation and we will be happy to hear what you think?
