The heart of the cross is penal substitutionary atonement. But what does that mean exactly, and why do many theologians object to this doctrine? Steve Jeffrey is the Minister of Emmanuel Evangelical Church in north London. He helped write a book on this topic - Pierced for our Transgressions. He unpacks this doctrine for us by looking back to the Old Testament for clues to this pattern embedded all throughout scripture.  Don't forget- early bird tickets for REVIVE 2020 are available now at co-mission.org/revive

Does it feel like your evangelistic zeal has rather cooled off? Do you struggle to know how to start evangelistic conversations and what to say to people? Tom is going to help us as we think about how to go and tell the gospel in our secular age. Tom is behind a number of first step evangelistic resources, your church may be using one of them - A Better Hero and A Better Life. You can find out more about these resources, and more at Something Better, a website put together by Dundonald Church to equip church members in evangelism.

One of our most popular seminars from REVIVE 2018 was "Is Your Gospel White and Middle Class?" presented by Felix Aremo, pastor at Brixton Local Church, and Alex Brito, pastor at Mosiac Multicultural Church. Their seminar brought up key and uncomfortable issues about how the church can present a singular culture that makes it irrelevant and inaccessible to those from minority cultures. Felix recorded his part in the Co-Mission Studio, which we are sharing here in a special edition of the Co-Mission Podcast.  Felix wrote more on this topic in the summer 2018 issue of Co-Mission Articles- you can read it here: https://co-mission.org/article/building-truly-diverse-gospel-communities/ How did you find this special episode of the podcast?
