On a cold July evening 31 years ago my world was turned upside down. I was at a university conference and Phillip Jensen was speaking from the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Corinthians. The topic of the conference was ‘work’ and as Phillip drew out the contrast between God’s work in the world and our work, I saw the entire vision of what I had planned do with my life dissolving – and being reformed - before my very eyes. In a similar ‘reversal’, we read that God ‘will destroy the wisdom of the wise’ (1 Corinthians 1:19). City Legal is pleased that Phillip speaks for us this week on the topic of ‘How God fools the atheists’.
