Christians are called to share the Gospel and engage the culture. How are they doing? Especially now when it seems that faith is being shoved from the public square? What is and isn’t working? What lessons can we learn from the past? New York Times Bestselling author and broadcaster, Raymond Arroyo will share his insights.
