Inter-Varsity PressUncommon Decency: Christian Civility in an Uncivil World
In these wild and diverse times, prolifers square off against pro-choicers, gay liberationist confront champions of the traditional family, husbands and wives face each other in court, artist attack legislators, and "politically correct" intellectuals abhor crusading fundamentalists. Philosopher and ethicist Mouw is concerned that, too often, Christians seem to be contributing more to the problem than to the solution. But he recognizes - from his own personal struggle - that it's not easy to hold to Christian convictions and treat sometimes vindictive opponents with civility and decency.

Review 1 for Uncommon Decency: Christian Civility in an Uncivil World
Date:July 7, 2002
Shallow little book, pushing accommodation. Not for conservative evangelicals with firm convictions.Mouw belittles Luther's "Here I stand" position, which is to me admirable. Having just read The Schmalkald Articles, how can any conservative evangelical Protestant not agree with Luther!I do believe Mouw has good intentions and is sincere in wanting more civil interaction between persons of faith. The book is written in an easy to read and to understand way.
