Timeless ideas in a modern dress

Great link over at worldmagblog.com to an article by Doug Giles on contextualization - a great CS Lewis quote can be found there. Good advice to the older generation... C.S. Lewis: “Our business is to present that which is timeless in the particular language of our own age. The bad preacher does exactly the opposite: he takes the ideas of our own age and tricks them out in the traditional language of Christianity. Your teaching must be timeless at its heart and wear a modern dress.” HT World- Timeless ideas in a modern dress
