The latest edition of the theological journal Themelios (December 2008) is now available free online from The Gospel Coalition.
What do you make of this?
In 2004 I published Good News to the Poor. In Good News to the Poor I outlined three principles assertions about how we should relate evangelism and social action:
1. Evangelism and social action are distinct activities
2. Proclamation is central
3. Evangelism and social action are inseparable
In the latest edition of Themelios Tim Keller has an article on the gospel and the poor in which he makes the following three points about how evangelism and ministry to the poor relate (and I quote):
1. Evangelism is distinct
2. Evangelism is more basic than ministry to the poor
3. But ministry to the poor is inseparably connected to evangelism
There’s no reference to Good News to the Poor. Coincidence?
