What Is Gospel-Shaped Mercy?

Tim Keller, Stephen Um, and Jason Cook | May 23, 2017

“What is gospel-shaped mercy?”

Jason Cook (TGC editor and associate pastor of Fellowship Memphis in Tennessee), Tim Keller (senior pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian in New York City), and Stephen Um (senior pastor of Citylife Presbyterian in Boston) discuss this question in a new eight-minute video.

Watch (or listen) below.

How is mercy linked to the gospel, and how should it affect the local church?

This seven-week track written by Stephen Um and recently released by TGC and The Good Book Company explores what it means to be a community engaging the world with compassion and justice.

Christians have rightly been suspicious of churches that give themselves to political and social campaigns—and seem to lose focus on the gospel at the same time. Over seven weeks explore how a right understanding of the gospel moves us towards ministries of mercy.

This track stimulates discussion as to how this looks in everyday life and in your local church context. The leader’s kit contains everything you need to lead this flexible curriculum in your church and small group.
