The Lausanne Theology Working Group hosted the first webinar in ‘The Good News in a World of Fake News’, a three-part webinar series to promote a biblical understanding of the Christian gospel and, in particular, to distinguish between the gospel and distorted forms of the gospel now gaining ground in many parts of the world.

‘Knowing the Story’ (video recording above) took place on 22 October 2021 at 12.00 GMT. Participants learned how to distinguish between the gospel and presentations of the gospel that depart from the central truths of the gospel, often by failing to appreciate the way in which the gospel is part of the larger story of Scripture.
