In his message at TGC Netherlands 2023, Collin Hansen discusses Tim Keller’s insights into cultural apologetics and mission in a post-Christian era, focusing on the background of Keller’s book Making Sense of God.

Keller, influenced by thinkers like James Davison Hunter, Charles Taylor, Alasdair MacIntyre, Philip Rieff, and Robert Bellah, critiques the Enlightenment and its inability to provide meaning and justice in the absence of Christian resources.

Hansen outlines seven steps inspired by Keller’s approach, including challenging prevailing social assumptions, integrating multidimensional faith, and demonstrating Christian community. He emphasizes the urgent need for apologetics in a cross-pressured, secular age.
