Lecture - God Among Idols: Abraham's Call and Missions Today

  • Regent College 5800 University Blvd Vancouver, B.C. V6T 2E4 Canada (map)

The call of Abram is the central missional text of the Bible but it's not the beginning of the story. The story begins with the incarnational God showing up in Ur, whose citizens worshipped foreign gods; it begins with an incarnational God appearing to an elderly man in a polytheistic culture. In our post-Christian context, the church needs to return to her roots, remembering that God's missional call began not in the Promised Land but in a pagan city.
