In this talk, he explains why the minority position of the church in American culture should not drive us into a siege mentality. Instead, the kingdom of Christ should set our priorities, leading us to heartily embody and proclaim the good news among people who think differently from us. While this enterprise is intimidating, Moore explains why it is full of unspeakable potential.
