Towards a Renaissance of the Christian Mind

We have a great opportunity with Vishal Mangalwadi visiting Minnesota to promote his latest book ‘The Third Education Revolution’ . Vishal’s lecture is ‘Towards a Renaissance of the Christian Mind’.

Vishal is very well known to you all, a long-time friend of L’Abri, originally from India, he always brings a refreshing eye to the challenges we face in the West. The author of many books, including ‘Truth and Transformation’ and ‘The Book that made your World”, he is an engaging speaker. We are delighted that his wife Ruth will be accompanying him.

In regard to this book tour and lecture, he writes:

In 2014, Vishal Mangalwadi gave a Friday night lecture at L’Abri on “Why Christianity Lost America.” Seven years later, on Friday, September 17, 2021, @ 7 pm, Vishal and Ruth returned to speak on how America’s marginalized Church can take education back from the state to disciple the USA.

Ten of the 12 spies that Moses sent out to scout the Promised Land came back with a report, “We can’t attack those people; they are stronger than we are. . . All the people we saw there are of great size.. . We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them.” (Numbers 13: 31-33)

Is there any realistic chance that America can witness a fresh Great Awakening?

Vishal and Ruth are visiting the Twin Cities to launch The Third Education Revolution which is both a book and a revolution. You can check it out on
