On April 27-28, 2018, Lead U Discipleship hosted its second conference in our Lead U Conference Series. The conference, “For the Life of the World: Christianity and Cultural Engagement,” aimed to explore the way in which the universal Church, local churches, and individual Christians should engage the culture with the gospel. We hoped to provide helpful biblical, theological, and historical insight into the problem and potential solutions.
About the Session:
In Session #2 of the conference, “Truth, Power, and the Prophets: A Biblical Legacy,” Dr. Rusty Osborne explores the manner in which Old Testament prophets challenged the political powers of their day as a means of determining how we might speak prophetically to our cultural powers today.
