the primary Christian intellectual challenge for the next 50 years is…

‘…to win the argument that there is such a thing as purpose — to things and to human beings in particular.’

That’s what Andrew Katay told to our NTE mission team yesterday. (In fact, as he freely admitted, he was relaying something Leslie Newbigin had suggested quite some time ago.)

What do you reckon?
