Published in December of 1970

SUMMARY: Change a few numbers here, insert a current event there, and pastor Tom Skinner‘s sermon from the 1970 Urbana conference could easily be about today. His impassioned, direct speech touches on the history of racism, the silence of the church and evangelicals, law and order, politics, Americanism, evangelism, and much more. Powerful and highly recommended.

KEY QUOTE: “There is no possible way you can talk about preaching the gospel if you do not want to deal with the issues that bind people. If your gospel is an ‘either-or’ gospel, I must reject it. Any gospel that does not talk about delivering to man a personal savior who will free him from the personal bondage of sin and grant him eternal life and does not at the same time speak to the issue of enslavement, does not speak to the issue of injustice, does not speak to the issue of inequality – any gospel that does not want to go where people are hungry and poverty-stricken and set them free in the name of Jesus Christ is not the gospel.”
