The Ephesiology Blog focuses on the missiological exegesis of contemporary culture as we study people, history, and beliefs in order to understand what God might be doing to engage society with the gospel.

Join us here for thought provoking and pro-active reflections on current events and effective cultural engagement that leads to a missiological theocentric passion for God’s mission in the world. Look for updates to previous blogs as we continue to think and process what we are observing in culture.
