‘Uncommon Unity,’ with Richard Lints

Richard Lints, consulting theologian for Redeemer City to City, joins Matt and Alastair for a discussion of unity and difference.

Our times are fragmented. Political and cultural differences rage, even among people who otherwise show goodwill. But what if Scripture actually provides the key for thinking about unity in diversity? Dr. Richard Lints joins Matt and Alastair to explore the nature of diversity as he wrote in his new book, Uncommon Unity. There are no easy answers, but there is a lot of good discussion. Join us!
