Missional Keller

I’ve said it fairly often here. I have great appreciation for Tim Keller (though I would disagree with his soft-complementarion position on women in ministry). He would qualify as one of my “heros in the faith.”

My pal, Triple D points to this article from Tim on “The Missional Church” – written in 2001. Check it out and see what you think. Darryl sees a shift happening in the reformed camp of the evangelical world. He says,

It really seems that just as the emerging movement seems to be slowing or changing, the Reformed movement has taken over, as suggested by Christianity Today and others. What’s interesting is that there is a real missional edge to this, as evidenced by guys like Tim Keller (see Keller’s The Missional Church in PDF). It’s not your mother’s Reformed church. It’s theologically robust but also contextual and it’s making an impact. It’s also more theologically conservative, but it’s solidly missional.

What do you think? Do you sense some of the same things happening?
