How to Survive a Cultural Crisis—7 Principles from Mark Dever


Each nation and age has a unique way to express its depravity, to attack God. But none will succeed any more than the crucifixion succeeded in defeating Jesus.

So, how do we “survive” these cultural crises? Mark Dever offers seven principles to answer this question. We hope this will provide Christians everywhere with a joyful hope in the good and kind providence of God, even as things appear to be turning against us.

Editor’s note: This talk was originally given at The Gospel Coalition’s 2015 National Conference.
