Ray sits down with Journalist and Pastor John Dickerson to discuss his newest book, “Jesus Skeptic,” which John calls a “visually-based, social justice apologetic for a post-truth generation.”
 
Bio:
John is a bestselling author, reporter, and investigative journalist whose writings have appeared in the New York Times, USA Today, and many other publications. He is a multi-award winning journalist that has appeared on CNN, ABC, and most major networks, and was the recipient of the Livingston Award for Young Journalists.
 
He is currently the lead pastor of Connection Pointe Christian Church in Indianapolis.
 
Quotes:
“You’re working in the marketplace not by accident. God ordained from eternity past that you would work right where you’re working right now.”
 
Key Takeaways:
1. Don’t sell yourself short or understimate your mission field.
2. Many of the great American forerunners of Social Justice were motivated by the Word of God.
3. Show up to your workplace with the same purpose and intentionality as a pastor showing up to minister at church.
4. Whenever our focus is taken away from the Word of God as central to our lives, that is when society drifts away from God.
