Mark Dever and Jim Wallis on Gospel and Social Justice

Out of Ur has been posting a series of videos where Mark Dever and Jim Wallis, along with Skye Jethani engage the issues of the gospel and social justice.  The matter of justification and justice is a longstanding interest of mine, so I was particularly interested in this discussion.  For the record, I don’t agree with either of them entirely but find myself very close to Dever’s position.  Take a look and let me know what you think.

  1. Jim Upchurch Says:

    Very interesting, helpful, and clarifying.

    I think I completely agree with Dever.

  2. Chris Vinson Says:

    It seems to me that part 4 is the most helpful exchange, where Dever and Wallis clearly disagree over whether seeking justice in community is ‘integral’ to the gospel or merely an ‘implication’ of it.

    Tim, since you said you do not completely agree with either man, I would be interested to hear you explain where you take issue with them.
