Series: Interview with Nancy Pearcey
As we endeavour to share the Gospel cross-culturally, it makes sense to first take the time to understand the worldview of those around us, to empathise with the way they see the world, their deep-seated beliefs and goals in life.
One particular worldview that is becoming prevalent among the educated classes is secularism. Universities are discipling the nations into a global secular worldview. These are the thought leaders around the world, taking key roles in government, media, law- culture shaping institutions- and so those of us in missions need to get up to speed on secularism, not just in Western cultures but in all cultures around the world.
In this interview series bestselling author Nancy Pearcey highlights modern challenges Christians face in taking the Gospel to the world.
Nancy Pearcey is the author of "Love Thy Body: Answering Hard Questions about Life and Sexuality." Her earlier books include "The Soul of Science," "Saving Leonardo," "Finding Truth," and two ECPA Gold Medallion Award Winners: "How Now Shall We Live" (co-authored with Harold Fickett and Chuck Colson) and "Total Truth."
