TruthTalk: Andy Stanley – Unhitched, Unhinged, or Misunderstood

Should we be concerned when Andy Stanley, the leader of the biggest church in the USA, says that it is time for us to ‘unhitch’ from the Old Testament? Is he unhitched from truth, unhinged, or just misunderstood? This TruthTalk seeks to answer these questions and explores the relevance of the Old Testament and

Andy Stanley: Unhitched, Unhinged, or Misunderstood?

  In this article, I respond to a challenge to comment on Andy Stanley’s ‘Aftermath’ series of sermons.
