The Case of Jim Elliot and an Approach to Missions Knowing God

    • Religion

This week, the guys talk to Matthew Ford, a PhD candidate in Latin American History at Stony Brook University about the recent decision to replace the plaque at Wheaton College commemorating the death of Jim Elliot and Ed McCully because of its insensitive language to native peoples. We get into what those missionaries were doing there, how they went about evangelizing, and what our approach to missions should be. It was a great conversation, and we hope you enjoy it!
