The Story of Redemption grew out of a desire to connect the gospel to where people are today. It is the product of numerous studies with real people out in the real world, as well as intensive research and formal studies on gospel, culture, and conversion.
People no longer need to simply be better taught about baptism. They do not know who God is, why they are on this earth, what Christ has done for them, or--the most pressing question that they have--why their lives are so messed up.
The breakdown of the family, constant relocation, unsafe neighborhoods, abuse, long commutes, and hectic lives have created a sense of distance from God and others. People today long for community, for a sense of belonging. They long for a better world--not just in a distant heaven--but a better world today. What people are most looking for is hope in their lives, an explanation for why their lives and relationships are broken, and a pathway to a better life.
The Story of Redemption tells that story.
