You want to communicate what is true from the Scriptures. But all around you, it seems that the sorrows, skepticisms, and longings of your neighbors raise suspicion and doubt about the gospel. How do you speak of Jesus from the Bible among neighbors who feel cynical about both? What resources does the Bible itself provide for those of us who preach Jesus amid the swirling cultural voices of our generation? And how do you do all of this as a local pastor or leader just trying to be faithful?
