Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co. Christ and Culture Revisited

Niebuhr's Christ & Culture is widely considered one of the most significant books on social ethics written in modern times, but detractors are not as certain of its categories and judgments. Carson argues that all five of Niebuhr's categories are viable and should be viewed as part of one single overarching biblical vision. Called to live in the world, but not to be of it, Christians must maintain a balancing act that becomes more precarious the further our culture departs from its Judeo-Christian roots. While many other books on culture interact with Niebuhr, none of them takes anything like the biblical-theological approach adopted here. Groundbreaking and challenging. 240 Pages. Hardcover from Eerdmans.

D.A. Carson is research professor of New Testament at Trinity Evangelical School, Deerfield, Illinois. He has written nearly fifty other books, including The Gagging of God: Christianity Confronts Pluralism; How Long, O Lord? Reflections on Suffering and Evil; and Becoming Conversant with the Emerging Church.

How do we live in the world but not of it? What belongs to Caesar and what belongs to God? Carson shows in his John Gillian fashion this issue is just as complex as ever in today's world, and more so, requiring balance and biblical wisdom. Preachers won't find a lot of grist for their mills but will find it a thought provoking read.
