5. A loving God would not send people to hell.
6. Science has disproved Christianity.
7. You can’t take the Bible literally.

9. The knowledge of God
10. The problem of sin

14. The Dance of God
Epilogue – Where do we go from here?
Redeemer Presbyterian Church, pastored by Tim Keller, was recently featured in Outreach Magazine‘s Top 25 multiplying churches list. (Redeemer was ranked as “#1”, whatever that means.) The more interesting read is Dr. Warren Bird’s article, “Church in the City: Although they are different New York City churches with very different audiences, Redeemer Presbyterian and Infinity Church are part of the same multiplication equation with a product of continuous Kingdom growth” — especially the (short) interview with Keller titled, “The Genius of Church Planting.”
