    Engaging the 5 Theological Tasks that Produce Church Peace

    Rodrick Durst

    The peace Christ wants is powerful, loving and of a sound mind. That peace grows strong & defies the gates of Hell to the degree five biblical practices describe our church culture. The practices are: knowing the faith well enough to defend it (polemics), interpreting the Word skillfully (exegesis), answering doubts winsomely (apologetics), discipling new believers into maturity efficiently (cathechesis), and sharing and showing the gospel convincingly (evangelism and ethics). Our harvest of righteousness depends on how well we sow PEACE. Uses case studies.
