Author Brett McCracken discusses the importance of understanding the big picture story of Christianity. He explains that without context, Christianity is reduced to a "moralistic therapeutic deism." McCracken urges his audience not to be lost in the myopia of self, but engage with and share God's story, which encompasses all of time. Presented at the 2014 CCCA Razor's Edge Conference
