It's finally here - 321, the Story of God, the World and You.
I've been mulling this over for a while. It seems to me our presentations of the gospel are generally quite anaemic and, at times, outright Unitarian (not to mention Pelagian).
It's easy to pick holes with other presentations. Here's my attempt to do something positive. This is trying to be doctrinally faithful, pedagogically memorable and simple without being simplistic.
I'll grant that it's considerably more involved than many presentations. But perhaps it's best to think of it as catechism for believers. I hope it will bring Christians back to these central doctrines and inform our gospelling of others.
The outline is essentially this:
3 God is three Persons united in love
2 The story of the world is the story of two men
1 You are one with Adam. Will you be one with Jesus?
Here's the video, animated by the excellent Jeremy Poyner
In future, I will unpack how 3, 2 and 1 do not diminish but are vital foundations for the planks of more traditional tracts - i.e. Creation, Fall, Cross, Repentance.
But for now, please go to the new website - 321. Show the video on Facebook and Twitter. And stay tuned for more videos, articles, tracts and a very affordable book - all in the pipeline.
