In my search for a good small group study comanion to a series on outreach I stumbled upon Tim Keller's 'gospel in life' dvd and study. It is comprehensive and both searching and practical and the dvd production quality is first-class.The eight sessions are:City - The World That IsHeart - Three Ways to LiveIdolatry - The Sin Beneath The SinCommunity - The Context For ChangeWitness - An Alternate CityWork - Cultivating The GardenJustice - A People For OthersEternity - The World That Is To ComeThe series is rooted in a deeply biblical foundation of what it means to be a Christian/the Church in our world and begins by focusing on our relationship to God through Christ and why it matters to the world. Keller stresses a spiritual response to God, rather than just a religious one. So this is not a simple "Ten Ways to Do Outreach" series (although it does guide toward specific small group's response to addressing needs in our community). Keller frequently speaks of the 'city' referring not just to urban centers but wherever there is 'a place of density, diversity, and cultural energy' - something that is true of most of our neighborhoods and communities.Some quotes:Session 1 - The City"In the city you are going to find people that appear spiritually hopeless. You're going to find people of no religion, people of other religions, and people with deeply non-Christian lifestyles, and you're going to discover that many of them are kinder, deeper, and wiser than you. You will also find that many of the poor and the broken are much more open to the gospel of grace and more dedicated to its practical out-working that you are." p.
