In But Not of the Desert [From the Table #5]

From From the Table

What does it mean to be "in but not of the world"? Could it be possible that modern Christians could learn about cultural engagement from an ancient desert monk? Greg Peters, a theologian, historian, and Anglican priest (and professor in Biola's Torrey Honors Institute) gives a 40-second version of The Life of St. Anthony, and then reflects on the importance of this strange and holy man in light of the Church in modern society.
