Created and Creating: A Biblical Theology of Culture
2 in stock
The gospel of Jesus Christ is always situated within a particular cultural context. But how should Christians approach the complex relationship between their faith and the surrounding culture? Should we simply retreat from culture? How important is it for us to be engaged with our culture and mindset? How might we do that with discernment and faithfulness?
William Edgar offers a biblical theology in the light of our contemporary culture that contends that Christians should - and indeed, must - engage with the surrounding culture. By exploring what Scripture has to say about the role of culture and gleaning insights from a variety of theologians, Edgar contends that cultural engagement is a fundamental aspect of human existence.
"Bill Edgar's Created and Creating is the most thorough and the most solidly biblical contribution to the current discussion of Christ and culture... His conclusion is that God's cultural mandate to Adam is still in effect and that the Great Commission of Jesus applies that mandate to a world lost in sin."
