About

My FaceHey, my name is Will Turner.

I’m a pastor of Redemption Church. Redemption is a small, inner city church that seeks to love Christ and love our community.

I am pursuing my D. Min. at Westminster Theological Seminary. I’ve created this blog to help focus my work and to make it accessible to those who may be interested.

My overriding goal is to apply Covenantal Apologetics to the Urban Context, specifically as it relates to the issue of identity. More on this to come…

I’ve been married for over 19 years and we have five children. We live in and love South Philly. I love all Philly pro teams (especially the Super Bowl 52 Champion Eagles) and occasionally may be found on the banks of the Schuylkill River trying to catch some fish. I even tried a catfish out of the Schuylkill once. I wouldn’t recommend it.

The name “Christ without Compromise” is taken from the introduction of Cornelius Van Til’s The Defense of the Faith. He writes, “If Christ is to be presented to men as a challenge to their thinking and living then he must be offered without compromise.”

In defending and sharing our faith we must always put Christ first and foremost. He is to be set apart as Lord in our hearts, minds, words, and actions. Our lives serve as the canvas of God’s glorious portrait of hope and redemption.
