The Keswick Lectures '16 - Sleeping with the Enemy

Glynn Harrison - Over the last few decades the sexual revolution has radically reshaped how people think about sex, marriage, the family and gender.

Many are beginning to question whether the gospel really is good news. In this lecture, Prof Glynn Harrison urges biblical Christians to wake up to what is happening around them.

And how do we live out an uncompromising commitment to the Bible and to treating others with the same grace with which the Lord Jesus has treated us?
